How to Address Racial Inequities in Your City


In response to the tragic events that occurred recently in Baton Rouge, Falcon Heights, and Dallas, NLC hosted a webinar to help cities deal with the challenges of race and equity in their communities – and commit to solutions. The webinar shares ideas for city responses, highlights what’s working in several cities, and offers tools and resources from both NLC and the federal government that are available to all cities.

It highlighted the following steps city leaders can take to address racial inequities in their communities:

  • Lead
  • Host a convening
  • Make change
  • Build sustained relationships
  • Build trust, and promote police legitimacy and accountability
  • Get the facts about racial disparities in your city
  • Keep in touch, and set an example for other cities.
