Introducing the National Equity Atlas Data and Policy Tool

June 22, 2016

The National Equity Atlas is a powerful online data and policy tool that helps local advocates track, measure, and make the case for equitable growth. This webinar is designed for organizations that are working to advance racial and economic equity across many policy domains. 

The webinar, sponsored by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, featured a live demonstration of the Atlas, which provides 31 indicators of demographic change, racial and economic inclusion, and the potential economic gains from racial equity for the 100 largest cities, 150 largest regions, all 50 states, and nationwide. Beyond its charts and maps, the Atlas also shares policy ideas, data analyses, and community equity profiles, examples of how communities are using equity data to drive policy change, and more. The Atlas was built through a partnership with Policy Link and the USC Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE) and is supported by the Kellogg Foundation.
