The New Castle Council on Race & Equity (CRE) has been structured into eight (8) distinct workgroups. Each workgroup has a Team Leader, and a designated Town Board member supporting the group. Workgroups have anywhere from 10-16 volunteers each, all of whom are assigned roles, tasks, and responsibilities to ensure the goals and KPIs of the workgroup and the greater CRE are met.
The Government Alliance on Race & Equity (GARE) “defines ‘racial equity’ as when race can no longer be used to predict life outcomes and outcomes for all groups are improved” and “we have successful systems and structure that work for all.”
The New Castle Council on Race & Equity seeks to do the following:
To commit to the achievement of true racial equity
To deploy the necessary resources to support sustainable racial equity
To utilize the power of government institutions and influence to uphold racial equity
To work in partnership with others to achieve racial equity beyond our borders
The Council on Race & Equity was established June 16, 2020.
