A New Community Vision For Dallas: 2020 Economic Supplement Report

July 20, 2020

Dallas is a business model of a city, and was initially created for the economicbenefit of White settlers. These self proclaimed 'pioneers' claimed stolen American Indian land after Native people were massacred and removed from North Texas, and some brought with them enslaved Africans, who were forced to work the settler's newly acquired land for free. This history is the foundation for the racialized economic inequity that exists today in Dallas County that this supplement will interrogate. During Dallas TRHT's 2019 Community Visioning sessions, participant responses centered on the issues of economy across questions about race and racism in the community, the look and feel of Dallas without racism, and what we need to end racism in Dallas. 

A New Community VIsion for Dallas: 2019 Annual Report

May 1, 2019

The goal of this report is threefold. The first goal is to value the narratives of the often unspoken and unwritten origin stories of The City of Dallas and Dallas County. These historical narratives are as important as any data, and should be acknowledged when doing work in communities of color and creating policy. The second goal is to share the beginning of a larger and more expansive Community Racial History (as stated in the W.K. Kellogg TRHT Implementation Guidebook), which is a historical analysis of the attitudes, policies and practices of place and race. The third goal is to share the results of our Community Visioning Sessions, which were opportunities for Dallas TRHT to listen to the community, and for us to be led by the communities' shared vision of a Dallas without racism. This report is not designed to serve as a complete or exhaustive history of Dallas.
