We share the goals of Cultural Districts.

Advancing racial equity

Cultural districts will:

  • Protect racial diversity
  • Uplift the cultural identity of Black, Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) communities and People of Color immigrants
  • Invest in and assist areas devastated by racial discrimination practices

Preventing displacement

Cultural districts are a tool for rehabilitating buildings, houses, and spaces. By doing this, we create stability and increase affordability in the area. 

Fueling business and job development

Cultural districts support economic activity that helps an area:

  • Become an inclusive place to live
  • Visit and do business
  • Create new economic opportunities and jobs for residents

Fostering cultural development

Cultural districts encourage people to celebrate, strengthen and highlight the community's cultural identity.

Establishing destinations

Cultural districts are appealing and memorable for local visitors and tourists.
