Profile of  Equity! Baton Rouge

Equity! Baton Rouge was founded in spring 2004.   We serve as a coordinating body placing people of diverse backgrounds in positions which will create interest in improving our community through building awareness for the creation of dialogues on race, and above all to educate.   We have received funding from the Casey Family Foundation.

 

EQUITY! BRís MISSION

 

TO BUILD UNITY AND RACIAL JUSTICE THROUGHOUT THE BATON ROUGE COMMUNITY

 

 

EQUITY! BR VISION 2008

In Baton Rouge, all are invited and many come, to unite in open, honest discussions of racial equality and justice.  Out of the ongoing dialogue comes a shared commitment to honoring, respecting and affirming the humanity of all.

By confronting institutional racism, Baton Rouge is a safer, healthier community.  Baton Rouge provides more equal access to and opportunities for:

        Housing

        Employment

        Fair treatment under the law

        Health care

        Financial services

        Educational systems

        Religious communities.

 

EQUITY! BR supports public educational systems that meet the needs of a diverse population and promote positive outcomes for all individuals.  We actively engage the system in dialogue with the community on how to help students empower themselves.

 

EQUITY! BR encourages religious institutions:

        To become more diverse and racially inclusive within their congregations

        To build bridges of understanding among different faith traditions

        To cooperate together in establishing peace with justice in Baton Rouge.

 

EQUITY! BR brings community voices to policy and decision makers.  We envision a political structure that reflects the diversity of its people.  We encourage community leaders to address racial inequities in all systems and work toward fairness and social justice.

 

EQUITY! BR promotes knowledge and processes that help to overcome institutional

racism by:

        Increasing awareness

        Providing education

        Building skills

        Developing leaders throughout the community.

EQUITY! BR cultivates measurable links with institutions and organizations committed to racial justice. 

EQUITY! BR enjoys substantial growth in membership, diversity, community support and funding.
