How do you address inequity?
From strain on essential workers to unemployment of others, parents are struggling to support their families. This stress is exacerbated by disconnection from community and reduced support in providing their children adequate childcare, education, and opportunities for physical activity. These challenges have a disproportionate impact on under-resourced communities whose basic needs are jeopardized. Equitable support for the families and youth of King County remain at the fore of members’ concerns.
