Review Community Listening Session Survey Responses Received

Report
BACKGROUND
Charged with identifying key issues facing the City of Santa Clara (City) involving historically disenfranchised communities and making recommendations to policies that help the City achieve racial equity, the Task Force on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (Task Force) is holding a series of community listening sessions. Through the community listening sessions, the Task Force will seek the community's input on what the City can do to build a more inclusive community and invite members of the public to share their experiences and ideas. In an effort to engage the community in multiple ways, the public can attend the community listening sessions virtually on Zoom, send an email to the Task Force, or take the Task Force's brief Community Listening Session survey at SantaClaraCA.gov/EquityTaskForce.

At the September 13, 2021 Task Force meeting, the Task Force provided input on staff's suggestions to revise the listening session survey and voted to delegate authority to the Community Listening Sessions Working Group to work with City staff to revise the listening survey and take steps, such as translations and other steps necessary to push out survey accordingly. Revisions to the survey are currently underway.

DISCUSSION
The Task Force will review the Community Listening Session survey responses received. The survey responses received since the September 13, 2021 regular meeting through October 15, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. are included with this report as Attachment 1. Any additional Community Listening Session Survey responses received from October 15, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. through October 18, 2021, at 3:00 p.m. will be provided as post-meeting material.
