Planning for Equity


PSRC incorporates equity and social justice in its regional growth, transportation, and economic development planning.

The central Puget Sound region has a long history of racism that continues to cause enormous harm. Generations of discrimination, disinvestment, and inequitable opportunities have helped lay the groundwork for a region where people of color and white residents too often have completely different experiences.

As a planning agency, PSRC makes decisions that shape transportation, land use, and the built environment. The agency has a responsibility to dismantle systems of inequity and reimagine a region where race can no longer predict life outcomes.

Regional Equity Strategy

PSRC will develop a Regional Equity Strategy to improve outcomes for marginalized communities and how the agency operates internally. The agency will lead with race, which has proven to be an effective method for not only increasing equitable outcomes for people of color but developing a framework, tools, and resources that can remove barriers for other marginalized groups.

The Regional Equity Strategy will provide guidance to help members work in a coordinated manner towards the region's goal of providing an exceptional quality of life and opportunity for all. It will also provide guidance and training for staff to ensure the agency effectively uses its roles to advance racial equity.

The work plan is anticipated to be finalized in spring 2021, for the next budget and work program. Initial phases of the strategy will be finalized in 2022. This work will be ongoing.

The approach will not be easy. You are required to maneuver straight down this trench and skim the surface to this point. The target area is only two meters wide. It's a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The shaft leads directly to the reactor system. A precise hit will start a chain reaction which should destroy the station. Only a precise hit will set up a chain reaction. The shaft is ray-shielded, so you'll have to use proton torpedoes. That's impossible, even for a computer. It's not impossible. I used to bull's-eye womp rats in my T-sixteen back home. They're not much bigger than two meters. Man your ships! And may the Force be with you!

Thirty years ago, lightning struck that clock tower and the clock hasn't run since. We at the Hill Valley Preservation Society think it should be preserved exactly the way it is as part of our history and heritage. Biff. I will. Oh.
