The goal of this project is to help Ann Arbor become more inclusive by developing a set of community engagement policies, tools and practices that can be a part of moving the community forward to overcome Ann Arbor's history with racism and prejudices that have caused important local perspectives to be marginalized from community conversations and decision-making processes.
As an initial step, a 30-person steering committee has been formed, comprised of community members and representatives of organizations in the area working to advance equity. Thank you to all who applied. We are thrilled to see so much interest from the community! We are now getting organized and are making plans for the steering committee's first meeting.
The steering committee's role is to help shape the approach to equitable engagement, play an active part in developing the community engagement strategy, serve as connectors to the community and organizations, and help ensure the quality and delivery of outcomes.
The first steering committee meeting date and time will be posted here. Please bookmark and visit this site to stay tuned for updates and opportunities.
