Diversity Equity and Inclusion
Combating systemic racism
I am committed to fighting systemic racism and promoting equity and inclusion in our community. I will work to invest in programs and initiatives that promote equitable access to resources and opportunities for all residents. This includes initiatives to increase affordable housing, improve access to education and job training, and create economic opportunities for marginalized communities.
I believe that it is essential for government to engage in dialogue and partnership with community organizations and leaders to identify and address issues of concern, and to develop solutions that reflect the needs and priorities of diverse communities. To this end, I will work to establish strong partnerships with local organizations and engage in meaningful dialogue with community members to ensure that their voices are heard, and their needs are met.
Finally, I will work with other levels of government and regional partners to advocate for policies and initiatives that address systemic racism and promote equity. This would involve participating in coalitions or working with state or federal legislators to advance legislation or policies that address racial inequities.
