Democratizing Data to Fuel the Movement for Racial Equity - image

Racial equity is the defining issue of our time. Uprisings against police brutality, amidst a pandemic disproportionately harming the health and livelihoods of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous people, have put dismantling structural racism at the center of our national policy debate. As community leaders take up the mantle of this national reckoning, disaggregated data is a crucial tool that can shine a light on structural and institutional racism and inform targeted solutions to transform systems and structures.

The National Equity Atlas is the nation’s most detailed report card on racial equity, and has been freshly updated with powerful new tools, analyses, indicators, and policy solutions. Learn more about how we support local changemakers leading the way toward equity and the new features of the Atlas, including the Racial Equity Index: a first-of-its-kind tool that measures the state of equity in the 100 largest US cities, the 150 largest metros, and all 50 states on key indicators of prosperity and inclusion by race.
