Social Equity

Creating Healthier, Safer Communities

Social equity ensures unbiased public policy that recognizes inherent privilege due to race or other group identification.  It ensures all voices and perspectives are included to attain policy that best achieves the collective goals of the community. Once accomplished it increases opportunities, reduces anti-social behaviors, improves public health and reduces crime for a happier, more resilient community.
