Race & Social Justice Initiative

The King County Equity and Social Justice Initiative takes aim at long-standing and persistent local inequities and injustices. Government and local communities are better prepared than ever to address these challenges. The King County Equity and Social Justice Initiative aims to end persistent local inequities and injustices that result in, among other things, higher rates of disease among low-income populations and disproportionate rates of young black men in jail. Ending such inequities and injustices involves the steps outlined below.

  • Developing and testing an equity impact assessment and review tool and incorporating the tool into decision-making.
  • Collecting and publishing measures to highlight inequities and to mark progress in correcting them.
  • Beginning a community dialogue process, using the new PBS series “Unnatural Causes,” to increase awareness among community members of inequity and social determinants of health and to spur action, especially around policies.
