How cities can become more racially and economically inclusive in COVID-19 recovery

The Urban Institute reviews their rankings of U.S. cities based on how they have become more or less racially and economically inclusive between 2013 and 2016. Cities such as Duluth, Minnesota improved their overall inclusion rank through reductions in racial segregation, their racial poverty gap, their racial homeownership gap, the share of households that are rent-burdened, and income segregation, among other factors. From this analysis, authors propose eight strategies that cities can use to promote and increase inclusion as they recover from COVID-19. These strategies include adopting a shared vision, sustaining bold leadership, recruiting partners across various sectors, building voice and power withing disenfranchised communities, leveraging existing assets, taking a regional approach, reframing inclusion as integral to growth, and adopting policies and programs that promote inclusion. #covid-19 #racialequity
