Are there “social equity” concerns in your community? If so, what are they? If not, should there be?
The Declaration of Independence points to an ideal of inalienable rights: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Throughout our nation’s history, access to those rights-as well as others-has varied among different groups and communities. The opportunity gap, wage gap, and education gap as well as access to health resources all point to a society still striving toward social equity. Social equity moves us toward fair, just, and equitable recognition and provision of basic needs of all residents and the total community. This conversation is designed to explore our own personal and community experiences of access to basic needs and resources and how we see and understand social equity playing out in our country.
