With the support of the California Endowment, Monterey County has begun to embark on a learning experience of Governing for Racial Equity principles in partnership with the East Salinas Building Healthy Communities Initiative. Initial introduction of Governing for Racial Equity (GRE) was presented to the Board of Supervisors and County Department Directors in January 2016. Additional technical assistance and training partners include Race Forward and the National Compadres Network.
