On November 24, 2020, METRO’s Board of Trustees unanimously voted in favor of Resolution 2020-33, a resolution adopting a Racial & Social Equity Statement as part of the Governing Principles of the METRO RTA Board of Trustees.

Racial & Social Equity Statement

Together We Will...

METRO’s team stands together in solidarity against racism and oppression. We will ensure equity and dismantle systemic processes that may impact Black, Indigenous, and People of Color each and every day. Uncomfortable conversations are needed and change is necessary. Being outraged is not enough and silence is not an option. 

We will listen.

We will speak openly.

We will stand up against racial and social inequities.

We will be intentional in our words and in our actions.

We will not be silent.
