Toolkit: City Racial Equity Policies and Decisions

The following pages include examples of concrete policy and budgetary changes local elected officials have made to prioritize racial equity in their cities, towns, and villages. These actions cut across the multiple functions of local government including budget decisions, ordinances and other high-level decisions that are shaped by cities’ commitments and investment of political will and resources. These examples will be useful to city, town and village leaders who are working to advance racial equity through structural changes to local government.
