We share a responsibility as individuals within a community and communities within a region. Our future depends on the success of all, but avoidable inequities in the utilization of resources and opportunities prevent us from realizing our full potential.
Our region’s population is growing and changing. Metro is committed with its programs, policies and services to create conditions which allow everyone to participate and enjoy the benefits of making this a great place today and for generations to come.
In 2010, the Metro Council adopted equity as one of the region’s six desired outcomes. The equity strategy program is an organizing framework initiated by the Metro Council in 2012 to incorporate and apply equity more consistently across its program, policies and services – in collaboration with community, city and county partners.
