Register now for an upcoming GARE webinar: Developing a Racial Equity Action Plan

July 25, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm UTC-8


WHEN: July 25th, 1:30 to 2:30 pm EST

People of color consistently fare worse than their white counterparts in many areas including housing, education, health, and public safety. Local governments have a unique responsibility to address the systemic forces that contribute to racial inequities in community. To identify and transform these systems, local governments must adopt a shared vision of racial equity, and work to implement policies and plans that drive institutional and structural change. Racial Equity Action Plans can put this change theory into action to achieve a collective vision and are a critical tool in advancing racial equity.

This webinar is designed to help local governments to discern key steps in developing racial equity action plans and share current promising practice.

Speakers include:

  • Nefertiri Stickout, City of Philadelphia, Office of Mayor James F. Kenney, Assistant Diversity Officer for Research and Policy
  • Matias Valenzuela, Director, Office of Equity and Social Justice, Office of the King County Executive
  • Ryan Curren, City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability Project Manager
  • GARE Deputy Director Dwanye S. Marsh.
