Our vision for Iowa is policymaking all all levels of government tied to enhancing equity. Our public systems must adopt policies that break down the structural barriers that have limited the prospects of families of color for generations. To achieve that vision, we must:
Analyze the racial equity impact of proposed legislation as part of lawmaking process, like we currently model a bill’s costs and other impacts
Commit our public programs and agencies to analyzing data by race and ethnicity and implementing data-informed policies that meet the needs of all communities.
