Palo Alto Race & Equity Action Plan Unveiled

An evolving, comprehensive effort is underway in Palo Alto to address racism and bias through a Race & Equity action plan.

The efforts range from an immediate comparison of police policies against ‘8CantWait” principles, leading to a deeper review of police transparency and accountability, and evaluating police data and public safety models, to launching a Black Lives Matter mural on Hamilton Avenue.

A new blog provides a summary of work underway and ways you can stay up to date on the progress, provide input and learn more, including events and learning sessions coming up fast including some later this week. Read the blog here.
