Office of Equity
The Long Beach Office of Equity exists to create purposeful disruption to systems of inequity and to build an accessible, inclusive, and just City. We achieve this by engaging community voices to inform the design of policy and system change, making inequities visible using data and storytelling, and building the City’s capacity to advance equity through training, tools, and technical assistance. The Office of Equity administers core policies, such as the Language Access Policy and the Americans with Disabilities Act, and coordinates Citywide Initiatives, including the Long Beach Justice Fund, the Long Beach College Promise, and the Racial Equity and Reconciliation Initiative.

On August 13, 2013, the Long Beach City Council adopted the Language Access Policy, which ensures community members can get important information and participate in local government in the language that they speak. The Language Access Policy establishes standards and procedures for providing equal access to City services and programs to all residents, including those who speak languages other than English.
