Mission

We are working to develop equitable organizational practices, to better engage our marginalized communities, to create processes which distribute resources fairly, and to advocate for policy change and procedures which affect our communities.

Vision

The mission of the Equity Working Group is to become a C.A.R.I.N.G, race-conscious community. To become a race-conscious community we have to be intentional about equitable inclusion and examine the ways residents experience multiple forms of discrimination. As we identify and understand barriers to inclusion and who the most marginalized are, we will build a community that works for all.
