To realize opportunity for everyone, we need everyone to be involved!

The Community Foundation’s Equity Initiative Advisory Group worked for months to research and identify five key areas where equity barriers affect marginalized groups: education, workforce development, income and wealth, criminal justice, and quality of life and neighborhoods.

As part of the Community Foundation’s 10-year, $10 million equity initiative, resident engagement such as the October 2021 town hall will continue to inform how the entire community can create innovative solutions to overcome these barriers. Together, we’re committed to achieving short- and long-term meaningful impact that improves quality of life for all residents, especially people of color and others affected by obstacles to their success.
