Created in Sept. 2020, the Racial Equity Commission consists of five residents and three ex-officios nominated by the Mayor and approved by the City Council.
This commission is tasked with reviewing City policies and procedures to ensure racial equity is a core element of government, along with making recommendations to officials on ways to promote racial justice and equity in Jackson.
The Racial Equity Commission meets the first Tuesday of every month, unless otherwise decided. Meetings are being held virtually on the online Zoom platform until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The same Zoom link is used for every meeting. It is available on this page.
