Borough Council Accepts TRC Recommendations

At their February meeting, Carlisle Borough Council approved a resolution accepting the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). Their final report can be viewed here. The recommendations are broken into six categories: law enforcement, arts & public education, housing & neighborhood vibrancy, public health, business & commerce, indigenous relations, and future of the work. The next step will be to form a standing committee that will continue the work of the TRC.

The TRC was established in 2021. Its mission is to improve racial justice and racial equity by meeting our community where it is and engaging it in truth-telling and reconciliation, to examine existing policies as well as past and present practices and structures that contribute to systemic racism, and to develop guidance for Borough officials about next steps for making our community more just and equitable through accountability and transformative change.
