Advancing Macomb Strives for Equity in Macomb County

Posted on June 23, 2020

Advancing Macomb’s mission is to strengthen our communities by sourcing high-impact solutions for local challenges. One of our core values is equity. We believe that disparities can be resolved by prioritizing support to organizations that face barriers to success, empowering diverse community leaders and creating an inclusive environment.

The recent spotlight on a long standing, vivid reality for communities of color is a necessary reminder that we have immense work still to do.

Advancing Macomb is committed to doing our part. We will identify opportunities for strengthening community assets and accelerate change through courageous conversations. Importantly, we will collaborate with African American leaders of Macomb County and community partners to cultivate solutions for racial injustice and systematic inequalities throughout our region.
