Welcome to Tuesday Tidbits! This space will be used every week to highlight new resources, upcoming events, and other resources related to improving health and fostering equity. If you would like your resource/event to be highlighted, please let me know at ddexter@cpehn.org. Thanks!

If you’re curious about how equitable your community is, then PolicyLink and the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity at the University of Southern California (PERE) have the perfect tool for you. The recently launched National Equity Atlas is an informative resource that allows you to examine a number of equity indicators (demographics, economic vitality, etc.) on a national, state, and regional level. For example, you can see a map of communities of color in California and also examine by region the job and GDP growth rate.

If all of this sounds a little overwhelming, that’s okay because PolicyLink and PERE are hosting Tools for Social Change: The National Equity Atlas, a webinar tomorrow (January 28th) at 10 am PST. Here’s what’s on the agenda:

“During this webinar, our speakers will describe the equity framework, take you on a tour of the Atlas, and share examples of how foundations can employ equity data and policy strategies to foster inclusive growth.”
