California Office of Racial Equity
Political Voice is honored to co-sponsor Senate Bill (SB) 17, which declares racism a public health crisis and establishes an Office of Racial Equity (ORE) and a Racial Equity Advisory and Accountability Council to address systemic and institutional racism that has resulted in poorer outcomes and disparities for communities of color. The California ORE will coordinate and lead the state’s strategies for advancing racial equity across state agencies and departments. SB 17 will also require the ORE to develop a Racial Equity Framework for the state and directs state agencies to develop and adopt Racial Equity Action Plans to implement the new statewide framework.
