MER & the Demographics Report

  Tracking our integration levels–in the towns, in neighborhoods, in schools and classrooms, on boards, among leadership, and in businesses–helps us work toward stable racial integration

The Monitoring, Evaluation, and Research Committee This committee serves to identify baseline data and methods for assessing the state of stable integration in various areas of the community, including residential and school integration. It also assesses racial representation in on boards, committees, and staff of public entities. The committee also monitors home sales activity, rental activity, housing prices, and the effectiveness of our brokers and marketing programs. It is also responsible for assessing the performance and impact of Coalition initiatives.

This committee has been responsible for the demographic research and report development since 2015 that has provided the township leaders, school district leaders, and residents with important information on the state of racial integration in our towns, neighborhoods, and schools.
