Governor Scott establishes Racial Equity Task Force

first_imgVermont Business Magazine Governor Phil Scott announced at his press briefing Monday and has signed an Executive Order(link is external) to form the Racial Equity Task Force as a component of a broader state effort to promote racial, ethnic and cultural equity, including in its response to COVID-19. Executive Director of Racial Equity Xusana Davis will chair the task force.“We cannot continue to treat racism and examples like the one in Minneapolis as uncomfortable and rare events, which is why we’ve been working on a Racial Equity Task Force in recent months,” said Governor Scott. “A task force is not the cure-all for what ails us. It is going to take some soul searching and real change—individually and systemically—to make a difference. The good news is, we can fix this without waiting for a vaccine or other solutions out of our control. It just takes us uniting to make this a better country for everyone because, like the coronavirus, this is literally in our hands.”The Task Force will undertake three major projects including:Evaluating structures of support for racially diverse populations, including a focus on the racial disparities in health outcomes highlighted by COVID-19;Reviewing current state and federal law on hate speech and freedom of speech and considering changes to state law to clarify the path for prosecuting harassment, hate speech and other bias-motivated crimes; andStudying and presenting options to encourage Vermonters from diverse, marginalized or underrepresented racial and ethnic groups to run and serve in public office at all levels.Executive Director of Racial Equity Xusana DavisIt will submit recommendations to the governor on the first project by August 15 and preliminary recommendations on the second and third by December 15. The group will also provide guidance as needed by the Governor. “This task force will contribute to advancing equity in Vermont, and yet it is only one piece of that effort,” said Xusana Davis. “The group will shine further light on existing disparities, but it is up to individuals, institutions and local and state government to make it happen. This is such important work, and it is everyone’s work.”Governor Scott today appointed Xusana Davis as the state’s first executive director of racial equity in June 2019.The Task Force will be chaired by Davis and include up to seven additional members, including representatives from the Governor’s office, law enforcement, a Vermont chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Vermont, the Vermont Human Rights Commission, and a member of the public.Click here or see below to view the full text of the Governor’s Executive Order(link is external), including additional details on the group’s charge.STATE OF VERMONTEXECUTIVE DEPARTMENTEXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 02-20[Racial Equity Task Force]WHEREAS, with the promulgation of Executive Order No. 04-18, codified as Executive Order No. 3-86, Governor Philip B. Scott clearly articulated a goal of having a more diverse and welcoming state; andWHEREAS, Vermont must create a culture in which racial, ethnic and other cultural disparities are openly acknowledged and addressed; andWHEREAS, the State of Vermont has demonstrated leadership in this regard through the creation of a Racial Equity Advisory Panel and the hiring of the Executive Director of Racial Equity; andWHEREAS, the State must and will continue to address the challenges of achieving racial, ethnic and cultural equity across the State; andWHEREAS, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted racial inequities across the United States, including in Vermont. COVID-19 and other emergencies demonstrate that disparities in times of crisis are reflective of disparities in times of prosperity, and that we must actively work to reduce structural inequities to ensure that no community is more vulnerable than another based on immutable factors such as race or ethnicity; andWHEREAS, we must bring state leaders, agencies and interested parties together from across Vermont to examine existing law on hate crimes, evaluate systems of support and look to increase civic participation among racially diverse populations.NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that I, Philip B. Scott, by the authority vested in me as Governor of the State of Vermont, do hereby create the Governor’s Racial Equity Task Force, as follows:I. Composition and AppointmentsThe Governor’s Racial Equity Task Force may consist of up to eight members or approved alternates, including:1. the Executive Director of Racial Equity who shall be Chair;2. one member representing the Governor’s Office, appointed by the Governor;3. one member of the public, appointed by the Governor from among three individuals recommended by the Task Force;4. one member from the law enforcement community, appointed by the Governor;5. one member representing the Vermont chapters of the NAACP, appointed by the Governor;6. one member from the Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs, appointed by the Governor;7. one member representing the Vermont ACLU, appointed by the Governor; and8. the Executive Director of the Human Rights Commission.The Task Force may, in its discretion, consult with any agency or department, or private sector professionals, outside of the Task Force for information and advice. The Executive Director of Racial Equity shall consult with the Racial Equity Advisory Panel prior to finalizing Task Force recommendations.II. Charge and ProcessThe Task Force is hereby ordered to undertake the following three projects in the following order of priority:1. Evaluate structures of support for racially diverse populations, particularly in light of the disparities in health outcomes highlighted by COVID-19:a. Structures that currently exist in Vermont;b. Models that have succeeded in other jurisdictions;c. Policy changes Vermont should consider or efforts the state can promote;d. Tools the state can provide to communities;e. Language access; andf. Economics, housing, healthcare and access to credit.2. Review current state and federal law on hate speech and freedom of speech and consider:a. Changes to state law that would facilitate prosecuting harassment, hate speech and other bias-motivated crimes; andb. Changes to State law necessary to ban Confederate flags or other similarly incendiary flags/images from being displayed in places that receive state funding. If all such proposed changes are determined by the Task Force to be highly likely to be found by a state or federal court to unconstitutionally restrict speech, after consultation with experts in constitutional law, the Task Force shall identify the entity most appropriate to conduct training and education in this regard.3. Study and present options for encouraging Vermonters from diverse, marginalized, or underrepresented racial and ethnic groups to run and serve in public office at all levels (local, state, including boards and commissions and federal). The Task Force shall determine:a. Who, or what, organization(s) should conduct the training;b. Whether there is grant funding available to support this effort; andc. Whether there is a program in Vermont or elsewhere that could be replicated.The Task Force shall be advisory to the Governor and make recommendations on the first Project by August 15, 2020. The Task Force shall also provide advice as needed by the Governor. Preliminary recommendations on Projects 2 and 3 shall be submitted to the Governor by December 15, 2020.The Task Force shall meet as needed and at least monthly. Meetings of the Task Force will be public and shall be held electronically for the duration of the COVID-19-related state of emergency and for so long thereafter as the Task Force deems practicable. The Task Force shall ensure notice of the meetings is received in different geographic regions of the State in order to encourage public participation.The Task Force shall receive administrative and staff support from the Office of the Governor and the Agency of Administration.To the extent funding is available, each member of the Panel shall be entitled to per diem compensation pursuant to 3 V.S.A. § 1010.III. Effective DateThis Executive Order shall take effect upon signing and shall continue in full force and effect until May 31, 2021 unless extended by the Governor.WITNESS my name hereunto subscribed and the Great Seal of the State of Vermont hereunto affixed at Montpelier this 1st day of June, 2020.__________________________________Philip B.
