Racial Equity Action Plan
In this moment of American history, we are forced to recognize the realities of race, economic inequalities, and natural environment changes that have disproportional marginalized American citizens. Since the founding of our nation, we have preserved the American ideals that all men are created equal. We must continue to negotiate agreements between national leaders to promote racial equity. Leaders in positions of power of credit, technology Infrastructure, construction building, social working opportunties, educational and health care management must consider all people of racial backgrounds. Racial equity means giving institutions, companies, businesses, and corporations fair cultural representation of our nation.
Systemic policies, institutional practices and cultural difference must come to an agreement to forge a path forward. Investing in leadership and organizations that create and normalize policies that promote racial equity. Social justice is a positive movement that gives people the benefits and opportunities to be successful hardworking citizens, regardless of their current circumstances. We call this Social Capital Credit. Giving people the chance to make a change in their communities and promote their products that give people a better quality of life, regardless of personal backgrounds that don’t fit a marginalized status quo. Institutions benefit from investing in human capital through the acquisition of procedures, experienced employees, and enhanced workplace emotional intelligence.
For instance, small business owners who might have had a rough start up in their past are given another chance to redemption in their profession. Corporate employees, institutional social workers, public service workers are given a chance to higher positions without systemic limitations on applications and entry-mid level positions that marginalize their futures. People are given the tools (credit, loans, financial returns, etc.) regardless of previous economic backgrounds. We live in a point of American history that we must embrace our responsibility, in any industry and level of profession, that we can make changes in rules and polices that give people a better chance of career success.
Despite living in one of the wealthiest nations in the world, nearly 100 million people, or one in three, are “economically insecure”— defined as having a household income below 200 percent of the federal poverty line. Among this 100 million, 52 million are people of color; they represent 52 percent of the economically insecure despite only accounting for 38 percent of the overall population. The other 48 million are White. Our chance to make new solutions is clear. We must promote inclusion. Allowing people to gain the access to basic necessities for their personal use and in their profession to increase their American Dream. Tear down barriers to new entry level jobs, create new jobs, expand pay bands for people with years of experience, and make new resolutions to contractual agreements of employment. Enhancing economic well-being and human development, both necessary to a healthy democracy, will require government investment in health and human capital.
Racial equity is defined as a society in which all can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. This requires the “consistent and systematic fair, just, and impartial treatment of all individuals,” as outlined in the Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity. While many definitions of equity exist, there are two consistent themes that we hold close in this work—racial equity.
• Benefits all people, not just people of color
• Requires addressing structures and systems in our society
Our government institutions have the capacity to make changes to procedural operations that can benefit new and veteran organization members. Debates on the flow of power that will change the way government facilities our capitalist democracy must show a bottom up and middle out approach. Empowering unions and grass roots organizations willing to make clear investments in our priorities to racial equity. Providing accountability to all people and deciding to help people move beyond their current circumstances. Collective well-being means embodying the values that we will prosper together, advance together, and expand our civil rights together.
Designing an Equitable Future
Designing an Equitable Future allows for millions of people to be added into the private sector annually. For instance, millions of jobs created for minority-owned small businesses, African American businesses, patents filed, bank accounts opened, retirement-savings accounts opened, nutrition assistance programs, and reduced child poverty rates.
Social community building can promote racial equity through homeowners association elections. People that gain positions of power in their neighborhoods can change the physical appearances through proposals and voting on new allocations of money. Enhancing the appearance of local neighborhoods increase the equity of homeownership and increases potential future earnings. Certain aspects of neighborhoods is adding nature trails, playgrounds, private pools, gyms, community centers, and other amenities that increases home values. Homeowners and rental associations that have an election process for President, Vice President, Treasure, Secretary hold positions of localized power in communities often marginalized as low income housing.
Access to increased pay bands gives company workers the ability to keep their current position with years of experience and gain the increases of pay they have earned.
Healthcare resilience to disasters that impact communities of diverse racial backgrounds. Gaining personal health care knowledge and infrastructure building of medical centers and hospitals in community areas often left out.
Civic engagement and participation in government elections puts informed officals in places of power that can achieve racial equity through appointments of contractual agencies and research project appropriations.
Entrepreneurship for young new business owners will change the status quo of creating good quality products. Expanding the opportunities of economic advancement through careful investments in people is racial equity.
Networking with business owners, company leaders and government officials to gain a unified goal for racial equity. Contributing to organizations with information to prosper in racial equity helps inform the public of issues and solutions.
Public safety includes areas of clean drinking water, health care, reducing violent crime rate, and reducing child poverty.
