The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque created Dubuque’s first Equity Profile in 2015, and are updating it to reflect the community today. The Equity Profile provides information on how all people in the community are affected by various systems, such as housing, education, and health care. It will inform leaders, community members and policymakers and serve as a guide for creating an action plan that supports Dubuque’s growth as an equitable and inclusive community.
This snapshot, along with the final Equity Profile, will take shape based on three types of input: local data; feedback from community members through conversations and surveys; and local professionals working in each focus area. How can you get involved?
- Share your perspective at a community conversation.
- Anonymously take an online survey.
- Attend a monthly panel discussion hosted in partnership with TH Media.
- Spread the word. Bring a friend to a conversation or share the survey link.
