Racial equity is the fair treatment of all people, resulting in no one’s life outcomes being determined by their race. Under racial equity, everyone receives the same opportunities, benefits, and tools to thrive. Racial equity is not just eliminating discrimination or unjust practices, but also implementing policies and systems which ensure fairness for all.
