An equity policy which supporters say is designed to promote fairness and justice in Loudoun County government was approved by the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.

The goal of the policy is reducing racism and sexism, as well as discrimination against LGBTQ people and people with disabilities. Passage comes after the county created an Office of Equity and Inclusion and hired Carl A. Rush as chief equity officer in July 2021.

Equity has worked out so well for the Loudoun County School Board (not), that last night our very own Board of Supervisors passed a resolution for Social and Racial Equity as Fundamental Values. The sponsors of the bill, Chair Phyllis Randall, Juli “middlefinger” Briskman!
