One Community Initiative Tackles Income Inequality

. March 5, 2018.

“One Community: Advancing Racial Equity in Ann Arbor & Washtenaw County” is being spearheaded by local government leaders inspired by some grim statistics. While Washtenaw is one of the wealthiest and healthiest counties in Michigan, it ranks 80th out of 83 counties for income inequality. In fact, it’s part of one of the most economically segregated metropolitan areas in the country. One Community focuses on incorporating equity into an array of government contracts and services.

    On point. We have the most educated city in America but we’re the 4th worst county in our own state at income inequality? I can attest to the disparity, grew up here & got free lunch & SNAP in a community w/ a median income well above $100,000. Addressing the summer slide for low income students is paramount as well as encouraging engagement & diversity across communities.
