One Economy Blueprint for Action
One Economy is an initiative led by The Director’s Council. The initial report published in 2017 showcased their research of the racial and economic disparities across Polk County facing African Americans. In 2020, it was followed up by a blueprint for actions and strategies about how Polk County can address these disparities.
