King County, Washington Equity and Social Justice Strategic Plan
The King County, Washington Equity and Social Justice Strategic Plan provides the county’s blueprint and shared vision for addressing environmental justice, advancing equity, and fostering resiliency. The Plan was developed through a diverse and inclusive community engagement process including more than 600 county employees and 100 local organizations. The Plan sets a pro-equity agenda for expanding access and addressing the following determinants of equity: child and youth development, economic development and jobs, environment and climate, health and human services, housing, information and technology, the justice system, and transportation and mobility. In the area of climate, the Plan recognizes that communities of color face disproportionate negative impacts during floods, heatwaves, and other natural disasters, the Plan reaffirms all citizens’ rights to clean air and water, open space, and other recreational spaces.
