Racial Equity Tools

In This Article:

The newly redesigned website Racial Equity Tools provides information on issues related to equity and institutional racism and more.  With fundamental information on key concepts, planning professionals looking for new ways to examine and address equity in their work will find useful frameworks here.

Over 1,700 links to data and analysis from across the web offer information, strategies, communication tips, racial equity progress evaluation methods, and more.  Although many of the resources point to state or metro area data, rural and small metro regional planners will find much that is useful here as well, including resources on policy and system change, civic engagement, and inclusive approaches to economic development.

The website was developed by the Center for Assessment and Policy Development, MP Associates, and World Trust Educational Services.  Learn more at
