We all deserve healthy, vibrant communities where every person thrives. A community where children play and explore, elders are valued, food is on the table, and everyone has a place to call home. We want the best education for our children, access to family wage jobs, and opportunities to make our dreams a reality.

A person’s race should not determine their social, economic or health outcomes, but racial inequities exist in nearly every indicator of community well-being.

The Race and Social Justice Initiative is committed to ending institutional racism in Seattle City government and achieving racial equity across our community. To track our efforts, the City of Seattle is monitoring key indicators that impact people’s lives.

This site uses quantitative data as well as people’s personal perception as relayed through surveys and focus groups.
