Equity and Community Partnerships
The Office of Equity and Community Partnerships supports and works with Public Health divisions, county employees and leaders, and community partners to advance racial and health equity in King County by addressing the root causes of health inequities, including systemic racism. Activities include assuring the department’s commitment to values outlined in Racism as a Public Health Crisis and implementation of King County’s Equity and Social Justice Strategic Plan.

When Equity and Social Justice was first launched as an initiative in 2008 and until the creation of the Office of Equity and Social Justice in the Executive's Office in 2015, Public Health was the County’s lead agency for Equity and Social Justice. Today, Public Health and its Office of Equity and Community Partnerships continues to collaborate with the community and rest of King County government to address the root causes of health inequities, including systemic racism.
