Racial Justice Committee
Surveys and Reports 2021
To further support the Alliance for Regional Solutions (ARS)’s strategic efforts and intentional commitment to continue providing value-added services and educational opportunities for its partner organizations, while also actively promoting inclusionary systems change that ensures our marginalized communities have equitable access to educational, economic and life opportunities in our region, the ARS created a Racial Justice Committee (RJC). The ARS
Racial Justice Committee was formed to assure the ARS and its partner agencies intentionally address systemic racism and equity through education, advocacy and social action.
Throughout February 2021, the members of the Alliance for Regional Solutions Racial Justice
Committee developed a Racial Justice Assessment Tool (RJAT) and the Racial Justice, Equity and Inclusion Survey (RJEIS) to identify opportunities for increasing Racial Justice awareness and improving the Racial Justice focused policies and practices of organizations operating in North San Diego County.
During March 2021, the assessment tool and survey were administered electronically to ARS Partner organization representatives to determine what education and trainings ARS could offer and provide to its partners to improve Racial Justice in our region.
After many months of work, the Racial Justice Committee is proud to share the final reports from the findings of the Racial Justice Assessment Tool (RJAT) and the Racial Justice, Equity and Inclusion Survey (RJEIS).
