🧵1/7 The #CRISPresearch team developed recommendations for @IndyChamber to advance inclusive economic growth in Indy. They focused on economic development, housing, access to economic opportunity, & community equity. Read the thread below from the report: policyinstitute.iu.edu/news-media/sto…
🧵2/7 Any region hoping to achieve full #EconomicInclusion & prosperity must address institutional disparities. That includes recognizing the negative impact legacies of racist and/or exclusionary policies had on residents & taking steps to correct those errors. #CRISPresearch
🧵3/7 #CRISPresearch analysts recommend developing plans to create wealth-building opportunities for people in groups that have historically been kept on the margins of the economy. To do that, leaders first need to assess & eliminate policies that reinforce economic disparities.
🧵4/7 To ensure inclusive #EconomicGrowth, local leaders must also understand that there are prerequisites for fully participating in the economy. Advocating for affordable #housing, public transportation, etc. is necessary to increase these opportunities for marginalized groups.
🧵5/7 Developing an #inclusive #economy extends beyond creating opportunities. Leaders should reduce the use of tax districts that only allow public💰to be used in areas experiencing growth. Instead, direct public funding & small business development to areas that need it most.
🧵6/7 With an eye on community #equity, the #CRISPresearch team also recommends leaders empower/partner w/locals to lead improvements in their neighborhoods & develop policies to create healthier places around #Indy that prioritize #PublicHealth
#HealthInAllPolicies #GreenSpaces
🧵7/7 As a growing community, Indy has an opportunity to rectify environmental and economic disparities that often dictate lifelong outcomes for children by pursuing the #CRISPresearch policy recommendations. Learn more in the full report at policyinstitute.iu.edu/news-media/sto…
