Equity & Empowerment

CAUSES:

Equity & Empowerment

A community that embraces equity and empowerment is one that lives within its means; cultivates collaboration; ensures inclusion; embraces diversity; and provides an equal opportunity to access employment, education, and resources. Equity ensures participation in the political and cultural life of the com­munity and fair access to public resources. It embraces stewardship of our natural resources so they are available to future generations, and recognizes these resources exist not only for the benefit of human beings, but all life forms. It promotes engagement in all facets of society and coop­eration for the benefit of the whole, creating a culture of collaboration that encourages innovation, shared accountability, and transparency in our actions. Sustainable communities use their diversity in people, cultures, economies and the natural environment to form an identity, where all residents have access to the tools needed to pursue a desirable quality of life.
