Webinar: The National Equity Atlas: New Equity Data for the 100 Largest Cities

Understanding the state of equity in cities is critical. The National Equity Atlas has been expanded to include detailed data disaggregated by race, nativity, and income for the largest 100 cities. The National Equity Atlas is a first-of-its-kind data and policy tool that provides indicators of demographic change, racial and economic inclusion, and the economic benefits of equity for all 50 states, the 150 largest regions, and nationwide.

Equity Blog

Check out the latest from Equity Blog, a project of PolicyLink to help nurture and inspire the nation’s equity movement. The growing equity community is united in bringing greater opportunity to all Americans — especially those from low-income communities and communities of color — by focusing on creating healthy, stable, and equitable communities.

During her mayoral campaign in 2013, Betsy Hodges ran on a platform of equity and growth, arguing that for a city with a rapidly growing population of color, but persistent racial disparities, the two couldn’t be more intertwined.

PolicyLink is pleased to announce that Angela Glover Blackwell has been named to the newly created Community Advisory Council (CAC) of the Federal Reserve Board.
