The Government Alliance on Race and Equity, Ground Works Consulting, and the Association of Bay Area Governments announce a new resource Advancing Racial Equity in Housing, Land, and Development: A toolbox for racial equity practitioners in government.
The toolbox includes materials for local government staff and their community partners to embed racial equity in housing and planning agencies’ structures, policies, and practices. Materials include conceptual frameworks and the tools and best practices to apply these frameworks in a local government setting.
The primary audience for the toolbox is racial equity practitioners within local housing, planning, and community development agencies with some understanding of racial equity concepts and strategies and a desire to learn more about how to apply them to housing and land use contexts. It is designed for practitioners to begin to use the toolbox’s resources with other colleagues and community partners.
