Racial Equity Commission

About the Racial Equity Commission 

Created in Sept. 2020, the Racial Equity Commission will function like other long-established City boards and commissions, consisting 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. 

Further information about the commission will be available when members are selected and meetings are scheduled. 

An application to serve on the Racial Equity Commission is available through the City website.
