E Pluribus Unum was created on the belief that the United States must confront the issue of race head-on if we are to move forward as a country. This is especially true in the American South.
At the same time, EPU’s work is race-focused but not race-exclusive. The work to reverse inequity, in all its forms, requires a variety of approaches and partners.
A key piece of our work is to help public officials and community leaders analyze their current and future policies and programs through equity lenses. Our data shows that when leaders prioritize equity, communities as a whole are more prosperous.
Do you have a policy or program that you want to assess for its effect on equity? If so, this toolkit is for you.
First, we’ll explain what an equity policy analysis is and who might want to use one.
Next, we’ll share a checklist to help you incorporate an equity analysis at each step of policy development. This will include tips and tricks to strengthen your policies by adding language regarding inequities.
Finally, we’ll help you review your policies for places you may need to remove or edit language that could have unintended consequences on underserved communities.
We’ll also share contact information for how you can get free, direct support from EPU and its expert Senior policy advisors
