Office of Equity and Racial Justice

The Office of Equity and Racial Justice (OERJ) was established in 2020 to strengthen the County of San Diego's commitment to racial equity, with the intent that race no longer be a determining factor in a person's life outcomes. This approach supports groups across ethnicity, gender, age, ability, and other identities to live and participate in our society to their full potential.

Mission Statement:

  • The County of San Diego's Office of Equity and Racial Justice partners with the community to co-create transformative, enduring, structural and systemic change in San Diego County government.
  • We bridge San Diego County departments and community voices to design bold policies and practices to advance equity.
  • We champion belonging for all and advocate for people suffering from structural and systemic racism and exclusion.
