City of Dallas seeks community input for the development of the first Racial Equity Plan
The Office of Equity and Inclusion is set to kick off the month-long Racial Equity Plan Summer Series. Starting today through June 3, the City of Dallas alongside retained vendor, CoSpero Consulting, will host a variety of in-person, virtual, and social media-driven events across all City Council Districts. The community conversations are an opportunity for residents, businesses, nonprofits, and other key stakeholders to participate with the City in the development of the Racial Equity Plan (REP).
Currently under development, the REP will be a three-to-five-year strategic framework to support all City of Dallas departments in addressing racial and ethnic disparities that specific communities face. Co-developed in collaboration with Dallas residents, the REP will establish short-, mid-, and long-term goals to minimize inequities found in the Dallas Equity Indicators Report.
“The City of Dallas is committed to advancing equity for all residents,” said Assistant City Manager, Liz Cedillo-Pereira. “We encourage all residents and community stakeholders to connect with us to help envision a city where we all thrive, and race and ethnicity no longer are predictors of social outcomes.”

The Racial Equity Plan will be considered by the City Council for adoption in August 2022. For more information, please reach out to the Office of Equity and Inclusion at [email protected].
