The Racial Equity Office takes a holistic approach to equity within a targeted universalism framework. While the Office was established on the basis of race equity, we understand that race is only an entry point. Our strategies are designed to positively impact all the intersecting identities affected by lack of opportunity in Washtenaw County.
The Washtenaw County Racial Equity Office promotes a diverse community and workforce that is inclusive in its interactions, equitable in its practices, and accessible to all residents and employees.
Yes, we ARE the Racial Equity Office and we agree with Maya Angelou:
- "The truth is, no one of us can be free until everybody is free."
