The Hyde County Equity Advisory Council is seeking feedback from Ocracoke residents on equity issues affecting Hyde County.

“The EAC aims to create a foundation for equitable change in Hyde County that our current leadership, future leaders, and our children can work together and build upon for years to come,” said Anna Schafer, EAC secretary, about the survey.

Formed in 2022, the Hyde County Equity Advisory Council is a group of individuals representing “historically marginalized populations” (HMPs) in Hyde County.

According to the North Carolina Department of Health & Human Services, HMPs can be defined as “individuals, groups, and communities that have historically and systematically been denied access to services, resources and power relationships across economic, political, and cultural dimensions as a result of systemic, durable, and persistent racism, discrimination and other forms of oppression.”

The council is collecting surveys until Aug. 21.
