Office of Equity

What is Equity? Equity is when everyone can reach their highest level of health and potential for a successful life, regardless of their background and identity.

What does the Office of Equity do? The Office of Equity educates and supports City staff and elected officials to advance equity and ensure that all Long Beach residents have what they need to thrive.

 Our Approaches to Advancing Equity

Build and strengthen partnerships with other City departments and community advocates to advance policy and systems change across the City. 
Make injustice visible using data, storytelling and critical research. 
Support internal reform across the City, with the focus of building capacity to advance racial equity and social justice in all programs, policies, and services.

One Long Beach is a vision for our City where everyone can attain their highest level of health and potential for a successful life, regardless of their race, gender, income, where they live, or other characteristics.

The Office of Equity will be holding meetings across the City to introduce One Long Beach and get input from residents. Stay tuned for updates!
