“Reduce inequality within and among countries [cities, towns and neighborhoods].”

What is the current situation with regard to social equity in Marin County?

  • Marin County has the 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).

Where would we like to be instead?

Can we get together to set time-bound, county-wide goals / targets?

[The idea is that a coalition of local groups would employ a series of systems thinking models to come to a set of local targets under this Global Goal; targets that at least meet the global targets. For example:]
  • “Marin County will be no higher than #20 by Race Counts criteria by December 2030.”
