Racial Equity

Achieving a healthy, inclusive, and prosperous future for Chittenden County is the vision of our Regional ECOS Plan. However, we know we cannot achieve that future without addressing the systemic racism and inequities in our community. Addressing inequity in our community is one of the eight key strategies in our ECOS Plan to achieve our vision, and there is much work to be done. We at CCRPC are committed to working through the racial and economic disparities in our community together with our member municipalities, partner organizations, employers and residents. | Read Our Commitment »
