The third installment of this webinar series features leaders from two large jurisdictions - The City of Dallas, Texas and King County, Washington - that demonstrate holistic and long-standing commitments and practices on racial equity. They’ll share their experiences, lessons learned, and strategies they worked on to expand and enhance how they engaged two core audiences in their work - residents and investors - when going to market with a new bond deal and outside of the market context. 

King County, the City of Dallas along with other jurisdictions are members of the inaugural cohort of the Municipal Bond Markets & Racial Equity Technical Assistance Program, launched in 2023 by the Public Finance Initiative in partnership with the PFM Group Consulting LLC’s Center for Budget Equity & Innovation, PFM Financial Advisors LLC, the Government Alliance on Race & Equity. We’ll hear about what Dallas and King County worked on in the program, the lessons they learned, and how they plan to sustain or build on that work in the future. The program is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, but the views expressed in the series are those of the program team members
