The City of Austin Equity Office holds an annual Equity Forum to share their progress on advancing racial equity in the city. It brings organizers, community members, and city employees together.
It is a showcase of how and where equity work is being done and to have conversations about working together on equity related issues and initiatives.
The Forum is one of many activities designed to build trust between city hall and historically disadvantaged communities. It is a place to listen and develop shared truths and empathy, but also a place to hold the city and other key stakeholders accountable around the Equity Action Team Dashboard.
