This Racial Equity statement was developed by the Partners on the Executive Committee and adopted by the Leadership Council through a rigorous 18 month continuous improvement process.
- Align and amplify individual efforts to promote racial equity throughout Marin,
- Work together to create sustainable, systemic change,
- Honor past efforts by synthesizing and summarizing existing statements,
- Develop a compelling, concise, shared statement that relates specifically to education,
- Produce something that complemented rather than replaced or duplicated individual organizational definitions or statements.
