Place Matter Core Values
Members of Place Matters are committed to addressing the remnants of structural and institutional “isms”—specifically the legacy of racism that is apparent in the different access to resources across the County’s neighborhoods today. Place Matters is committed to both process and outcome equity, while still balancing the needs for efficiency. We believe that while public policies, historically, have created and deepened inequity in our neighborhoods, public policies that are shaped by strong community engagement have the power to erase those inequities as well. This belief guides our work.
