Commitment To Equity and Social Justice

It is a region with increasing diversity that cherishes the traditions of many cultures.

With this commitment, King County has adopted a pro-equity agenda to advance regional change and ensure that residents from all communities are incorporated into our emergency planning and public outreach efforts.
