On November 10th, the Town Council formed the Racial Equity Ad Hoc Committee and charged it with the tasks of examining issues of racial equity, social justice, systemic racial bias, and diversity in Town and to making recommendations to the Town Council on how to best advance equity in all Town departments and operationalize equitable polices, programs and procedures within Town government.
The purpose of the committee is to ensure that Town policies, programs, procedures and laws are not racist, are free of implicit biases, and that laws are fair and equitably enforced. The committee will also explore additional opportunities to build awareness, solutions and leadership for racial equity, social justice, systemic racial bias, and diversity for Town staff and the wider community.
