Equity Advocacy Within Government

Government staff, or “insiders,” must work in tandem with folks in the community to build policies and processes that better meet the needs of low-income and/or Black, Indigenous, and other community members of color. Chris Norman and Annie Dobbs-Kramer conducted interviews with government staff across the Bay Area, most of whom are BCLI alumni, to identify best practices for equity advocacy within government. These learnings can inform equity practitioners within government on how to use their positions to advance an equity agenda and create tangible, positive change for historically disenfranchised communities.
