The Racial Equity Strategic Planning Committee (RESPC) is charged with developing a shared vision and identifying collaborative policy and operational strategies needed to achieve the City’s racial equity goals. This strategic direction will be captured in a report and presented to City Council. The Committee is comprised of residents, non-profits, employers, financial and lending institutions, cultural and community advocacy organizations, Bloomington Public Schools staff and students, City of Bloomington staff, and a City Council representative.

Members of the committee will work to define and solve the right problems, brainstorm innovative ideas and create models to demonstrate how solutions work. In keeping with the City’s commitment to authentically engaging underrepresented racial/ethnic communities in the governing process, we are prioritizing the voices of the those directly impacted by racial disparities. The committee will build upon input shared by the community to develop the final report that City Council and its partners can implement.
