“REDUCE INEQUALITY WITHIN AND AMONG [cities, towns and neighborhoods]”

Learn: What is the situation right now?

Marin County has the second highest racial disparity of all California counties, according to the Race Counts report.
Marin County cities and towns have some of the highest levels of segregation in the Bay Area, according to this 2020 report. (Ross, Belvedere, Sausalito, San Anselmo, Fairfax, and Mill Valley are in the top 10).
The Sausalito / Marin City School District is engaged in a process de-segregating their local school system, a product of a California Attorney General ruling in 2019 (Ref TBC).
In the Bay Area, Marin County has the highest disparity between incomes in the top quintile and the bottom quintile ($397,296). (Page 4, Ref)
