Equity Summit 2015, Los Angeles, October 27-29. REGISTRATION CLOSED.

Due to an overwhelming response, we have reached the venue capacity and are no longer accepting new registrations at this time. We will livestream the plenaries (updated info will be posted here). Until then, follow us on Twitter, #Equity15.

Attendees will explore Los Angeles, receive one-on-one training with experts, or take part in intimate discussions with those working in policy and advocacy. See a list of the institutes and tours. Non-attendees will be able to see some updates on Twitter, #Equity15.

These three large conconcurrent sessions: #BlackLivesMatter, Making Public Money Work for Equity: A California Success Story, and New Moves: Holding Ground, Fighting Displacement, give speakers and registrants more opportunities to dive deeper into discussions around movement building, policy wins, and the ongoing challenges to moving equitable agendas. Non-registrants can join discussion on Twitter, #Equity15.

Among the many sessions meant to explore cutting-edge approaches to building equity across sectors and locations, the Summit will also have three plenaries, which will be live-streamed: Place, Race, and Economy: Winning on Equity in the 21st Century; All-In Cities: How Local Movements Are Building an Equitable Economy; and Building a Multiracial, Multigenerational Equity Movement. Details coming soon!

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.

Focus Areas

Delivering the promise of equity requires attention to people and places, which are integrally connected. PolicyLink focus areas underscore this commitment to people and place, recognizing that a full range of opportunities are essential for all to succeed, thrive, and prosper.

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.
