Our Approach

The Racial Equity Office takes a wholistic approach to equity. While the office was established on the basis of race equity, we understand that race is only an entry point. Our strategies are designed to positively impact all the intersecting identities effected by lack of opportunity in Washtenaw County-  

Including (but not limited to):
  • PHYSICAL ABILITY
  • NATION OF ORIGIN
  • SEX
  • GENDER PRESENTATION
  • SEXUAL ORIENTATION
  • LANGUAGE
  • EDUCATION
  • NUEROLOGICAL STATUS
  • SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATUS
Equity Blocks
Yes, we ARE the Racial Equity Office and we agree with Maya Angelou: 
- "The truth is, no one of us can be free until everybody is free."
