Released Today: Race to Equity Report-Dane County

Year after year Dane County has been named by several sources as one of the best places to live in the country. It is often touted as a resource-rich area where families and young professionals can thrive. But, Dane County is not an island. It is a product of the state of Wisconsin, which has been described as one of the worst states to live for Black people. While many Black families are thriving in Dane County, it is not an oasis for many of its Black residents, especially those making low and moderate incomes. The Race to Equity 10-Year Report is designed to unpack how race, class, and, in some cases, gender impact Black Dane County residents. It applies what our team has learned from years of community engagement and lived experience, and it begins a discussion of why extreme and persistent Black-white racial disparities continue in Dane County. It also includes recommendations, which we hope will serve as a tool to support communities as they advocate for investments and against anti-Black racism throughout the Dane County and State budget/legislative processes, as well as in their efforts to hold public and private employers accountable. Please take the time to read and share.
