Creation of an Office of Racial Equity within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development:
Establish an agency to ensure Title VI of Civil Rights Acts is upheld. The Office would provide oversight, impact analysis, and evaluation of programs on communities of color. Through this effort, our goal is to ensure that low-income AAPIs benefit from key federal programs, particularly those allocated through state and local processes. This will be modeled on the Office of Minority Health as well as existing examples on the local level such as those in Madison, WI, and Minneapolis, MN and Seattle’s Racial and Social Justice Initiatives.
