Madison's Racial Equity and Social Justice initiative

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The City of Madison is working to increase equity in all aspects of city government.
It's part of the Racial Equity and Social Justice initiative.
The plan was introduced to the Common Council at its Tuesday night meeting.
It outlines steps the city can take to bridge the gap between whites and minorities; things like increasing diversity in hiring and trying to engage more neighborhoods in city government.

"I'd like to believe that the people of the city will really embrace this program and that the private sector will adopt some of the same principles," said Mayor Paul Soglin.

 The idea is to have the plan implemented in phases over the next five years.
