View Executive Summary

The purpose of this capstone was to create a tool that CDPHE could give to communities across Colorado to assess their built environment for racial inequities. The overall goal of this process is to measure and better understand the problems of racial inequities so that more informed conversations can take place and interventions identified. There are little or no resources for retroactively assessing the built environment based on racial equity impacts. In all, this report outlines the need for more tools like this, a better understanding of how racial inequities impact communities, and further education around racial inequities.
