The City of Bellingham and Whatcom County have partnered with The Chuckanut Health Foundation to develop recommendations for structuring a Whatcom Racial Equity Commission (WREC), which would be enacted as a government entity. Our focus has been on developing a collaborative, transparent, community-based process with a goal of creating a Whatcom County where every person is able to live, thrive, and belong for who they are, as they are, regardless of race.
Thus far, we’ve received community input through focus groups, website comments and emails, town halls and community vision summits. We are now inviting all Whatcom County residents to participate in a community survey, which will commence on June 1, 2022 and close on August 12, 2022.
The information we collect in this survey will help us better understand community priorities, and inform our recommendations for the Whatcom Racial Equity Commission. Your voice can make an impact. We appreciate your time in taking this survey.
