Community Relations and Racial Equity Committee Meeting

Date: 
Wed, May 22, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

The Community Relations and Racial Equity Committee met 4/25. We discussed the City’s proposed Human Rights Ordinance and noted we needed to add housing to our list of power analysis areas. As we recapped that concept, disparate impact and disproportionality surfaced as the actual impact while the result can become a human rights report. Pittsburgh recently published 80 equity indicators which were grouped into 4 of the categories we intend to consider. We talked a bit about what’s been going on in the south side of town, food deserts, etc.
