Regional Equity Atlas

The Regional Equity Atlas uses maps, policy analysis, and community-based research to promote widespread opportunity for stronger, healthier, and more sustainable communities.

Futurewise is partnering with 1000 Friends of Oregon and Ecotrust to steward the Regional Equity Atlas, and expand the reach of the atlas from the Portland Metro to include the Tacoma and Seattle-King County metro areas.  The partnership team is in the process of meeting with community groups in the Portland area who are historic users of the resource to gain insight into the effectiveness of the tool, and determine how best to develop a pilot project to expand the atlas to the Seattle metropolitan region.

Here are some links that outline how the atlas has been used to support progressive policy change:
