Equity resolution signed

Equity resolution signed

A signing of the times

St. Mary’s Health Officer Dr. Meena Brewster signs an interagency equity resolution on Monday morning, along with Scott Smith, superintendent of schools, and St. Mary’s Sheriff Tim Cameron (R). The three leaders identified issues within their respective agencies and agreed to “lead by bringing people together,” through a “multi-sector task force” examining, and making changes to opportunity, access and equity in the county. “We’re committed to recognizing structural racism for what it is,” Brewster said. “If we’re not honest with ourselves, we create room for bias, if we are afraid to change, that bias becomes inaction, and as a community, our collective inaction will lead to inequity and injustice.”
