Disparity Report 2021

Updated Disparity Report (March 2022)

In November 2020 Town Meeting voted for the Town of Brookline to prepare a Report on the Disparities within the Brookline community.

A working group of the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Relations and volunteer community members was tasked with collaborating with other Town Departments and community organizations to prepare a Report on ways to repair the Disparities in Brookline.

This Disparity Report reflects qualitative and quantitative data that was available within the municipality and community organizations within Brookline. This report intends to identify disparities that exist in Brookline’s programming, resources, and services among historically underrepresented groups, and ultimately include recommendations on fiscal allocations to the Town Budget, as well as concrete actions that can be taken by the Town to address and remedy those Disparities.
