Racial Equity and Social Justice Impact Statements

Supplemental Appropriations

On December 1, 2020, the County Council enacted Bill 44-20, Racial Equity and Social Justice – Impact Statements -Advisory Committee – Amendments. This legislation requires that all supplemental/special appropriation requests include an explanation how the appropriation promotes racial equity and social justice. The Office of Racial Equity and Social Justice analyzes each supplemental/special appropriation using a racial equity lens and documents findings from the analysis in a racial equity impact assessment (sometimes referred to as a racial equity impact statement). Using a racial equity lens brings conscious attention to potential racial equity impacts of government decisions by providing insights into historical and contemporary structural inequities that may create disparate or disproportionate outcomes. The subsequent racial equity impact assessments are the result of ORESJ’s analysis of supplemental/special appropriations.
