The DC Council highlighted racial equity as a city-wide value and goal in the 2021 DC Comprehensive Plan.  The Council specifically directed that land use decisions should include a racial equity analysis to account for past discrimination and avoid future outcomes that could lead to displacement and continue segregated patterns.  The Committee of 100 supports transparent racial equity analyses of land use proposals, including planning documents, that are based on disaggregated data, community engagement, and clear goals.
