- 430 Downloads
In 2002, a group of concerned citizens tasked the Jacksonville Community Council Inc. (JCCI) with creating an annual “report card” on the community’s progress in eliminating racial disparities in the quality of life in Jacksonville, Florida. The Race Relations Progress Report, modeled after JCCI’s Quality of Life Progress Report, has reframed the conversation about race in Jacksonville and has served as a critical tool in decision-making in the community. Its lessons provide insight into how community indicators projects can add meaning through disaggregating key populations, provided that the sponsoring organization shares the trust of the community being measured.
