Resolution Addressing Systemic & Structural Racism
RASR works with other organizations and coalitions across the state to amplify all of our efforts to address and repair the systems that result in disparate impact on minority and historically disadvantaged communities. We are interested in identifying areas where we can work to make needed changes in policies, practices, legislation, etc., to remove these systemic barriers.
