From education and housing to criminal and environmental justice, the persistence of racial disparities in our cities has been well documented. Mayors are uniquely positioned to take action to address racial inequity in our neighborhoods and our local institutions. A new report published by the Boston University Initiative on Cities and the National League of Cities delves into how cities are confronting racial inequity.
