Advancing economic, environmental and social justice means centering racial equity in grantmaking, advocacy and policy work.
How can we use data to inform our efforts to create a more equitable society?
Join TFN’s Inclusive Economies for a webinar exploring the National Equity Atlas, a one-stop-shop for data and policy ideas to advance racial equity and shared prosperity, produced through a research partnership between PolicyLink and the University of Southern California Equity Research Institute.

About the National Equity Atlas
The National Equity Atlas was built to democratize data and make the facts accessible and actionable to everyone — including the grassroots organizations that possess invaluable firsthand knowledge of inequities yet often lack the resources to gather, analyze, and display the quantitative data so crucial to policy campaigns to address them.
Originally launched in 2014, the updated Atlas builds upon its previous data infrastructure but provides new indicators, more detailed data for existing indicators, and additional ways to explore, share, and use the data, including:
▪ Equity data insights, with 31 deeply disaggregated indicators for 301 geographies
▪ Original research and data analyses
▪ The first-of-its-kind Racial Equity index, which compares the state of racial equity across the nation
▪ Policy solutions to build an equitable economy.
Join this webinar to learn how to use this powerful equity resource and how we can support local changemakers leading the way toward equity.
