Social Equity

For our community to heal and fulfill its great promise, the citizens of Louisville deserve equal access and equal opportunity no matter who they are, whom they love, or where they live.

We all deserve equal access to good and efficient government services and well-maintained public infrastructure – equal access to safe and healthy neighborhoods –  equal ability to learn and grow at quality schools, childcare facilities, and community centers and equal opportunity to secure jobs that pay a living wage.

This can only be accomplished if we commit to investing in the neighborhoods of our city that have long been ignored and if we invest in the people of our community that have the least social and political capital.

This is not only a moral imperative but a requirement to achieve sustainable, broad-based economic growth that will strengthen our social fabric and commitment to one another.
