Equity: Why It Matters
Equity is fair treatment; equality is equal treatment. When a person starts from a place of disadvantage and are then treated equally as a person that already has an advantage, there is still a perpetuation and ultimate growth gap between the two people. We need equitable measures first to close that gap and get everyone to a level playing field in education, health and employment.
“Unless we start to fight and defeat the enemies in our own country, poverty and racism, and make our talk of equality and opportunity ring true, we are exposed in the eyes of the world as hypocrites when we talk about making people free.”
