Even though our state has one of the fastest growing economies, many vulnerable populations are still left behind and struggle to keep up with everyday financial demands. The poverty task force established by the state legislature last year collected feedback to understand where state agencies can take action to undo decades-long structural racism in terms of housing, education, employment, and public assistance. This bill supports a centralized approach unifying multiple state agencies to work toward a universal goal – solving the challenges of equity, diversity and inclusion to meet the needs of marginalized communities. We should all have the opportunity to enjoy accessibility to the rewards of a vibrant economy. Urge your Senator to move E2SHB 1783 to the Senate Floor for a Yes vote.
