This report draws on the 2017 Menino Survey of Mayors to explore how mayors of medium-sized and large cities understand race, discrimination, and equity in their communities. It highlights three key findings: mayors believe that immigrants, transgender individuals, Black people, and Muslims are the most discriminated groups in their cities; mayors believe that access to public service is better for white people than people of color; and mayors believe that the quality of services is largely equal across different groups. It also outlines successful initiatives that cities have taken to combat discrimination.
