Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, whose Fifth District includes the Antelope Valley, will co-host a virtual community input session on Thursday, April 14, from 9 to 11 a.m. to gather feedback on a countywide racial equity strategic plan.
The forthcoming plan will guide LA County’s future investments in historically underinvested communities. It will also serve as a blueprint for creating parity and equity, leveling the playing field for communities of color that have been systematically disenfranchised.
“This community input session is about getting a clear understanding of the need that exists in the Fifth District and giving a voice to the constituents that I represent,” Barger said. “This is a key opportunity to ensure that the county’s equity investments benefit rural and dense communities alike. It provides a seat at the table for everyone to equally share their feedback on how their quality of life can be improved.”
The meeting will also be co-hosted by the county’s Anti-Racism, Diversity, and Inclusion Initiative, which is the lead entity for the plan’s development and planning process.
