Equity Action Plan

President Biden signed Executive Order 13985 Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government on the first day of his Presidency. The EO charged each agency to pursue a comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality. This action plan summarizes the near and long-term actions NARA will take to advance equity and expand opportunities for Americans in underserved communities.
