2017 Annual Report: Introduction

Mission

Our mission is to create an equitable and inclusive community where all individuals are empowered, conscientious, and courageous.

Focus Areas

  • Civic Equity: the realization of a society where all individuals receive equitable access to resources, protections, and opportunities. Each person enjoys: (a) equal treatment under law, both through law enforcement and the judicial system; (b) equitable access to and representation in the political process; and (c) equal opportunity to engage in the design of and benefit from inclusive public policy.
     

  • Health Equity: The attainment of the highest level of well-being for all individuals, regardless of personal or social determinants of health. Health equity requires the social, economic, and environmental conditions that result in full access to opportunities that lead to healthy lives.
     

  • Educational Equity: All individuals are fully prepared for the roles of their choice, regardless of personal or social circumstances. Educational equity requires systems of support that result in full access to opportunities that lead to personal growth.

Area Served

Our primary area of service is the City of Rochester and Olmsted County.
