On Dec. 15, 2020, City Council passed Resolution R-367-2020 to create the African American Equity Resolution Task Force to identify strategic solutions to improve areas of disparity and disenfranchisement in the Black community and work with existing agencies in the community.

The Task Force will be comprised of business, community, financial, education, faith, healthcare, youth and city leaders.

The Community Empowerment Department will work with the African American Equity Restoration Task Force to identify solutions and develop policy and programs that will establish opportunities for generational wealth building in the Black community.
