Racial Impact Note: Assessment Tool for Civil Legislation in Michigan

The Center for Civil Justice (CCJ) is working towards proposing a new bill to Michigan lawmakers that requires proposed legislation to undergo a racial impact assessment, presented as a Racial Impact Note. CCJ describes racial impact assessments as non-partisan, systematic examinations of how different racial and ethnic groups will likely be affected (both positively and negatively) by proposed legislation and are used to mitigate or eliminate unanticipated or unintended adverse racial disparities. The focus of this project is developing both specific samples of and general guidelines for racial impact assessments, which will facilitate CCJ’s efforts to secure support for a Racial Impact Note bill from Michigan legislators.
