TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-A Kansas commission is striving to achieve social equity between Caucasians and African Americans.
The Kansas African American Affairs Commission has an "Equity Matters" project that they are implementing throughout the state to look at the difference in equity between African Americans and Caucasians.
The goal is to get the community involved and to use the data analysis they put together to see if they have made any improvements compared to last year.
"Together we can work to affect change in our state. We try to build relationships and leverage our existing resources," said Executive Director, Mildred Edwards.
Project consultants from the commission say there wasn't much change in the education and economic areas compared to last year. The data showed only a .01% increase or decrease in those areas.
