PolicyLink and PERE's Regional Equity Profile for the Southeast Florida Region

June 11, 2014

by PolicyLink and PERE

The newest regional equity profile in partnership with PolicyLink, "An Equity Profile of Southeast Florida" shows how communities of color are driving the region's population growth, and how addressing racial gaps in income, health, and opportunity can lead to inclusive economic growth for all.

"Across the country, regional planning organizations , local governments, community organizations and residents, funders, and policymakers are striving to put plans, policies, and programs in place that build healthier, more vibrant, more sustainable, and more equitable regions. Equity – ensuring full inclusion of the entire region’s residents in the economic, social, and political life of the region, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, neighborhood of residence, or other characteristic – is an essential elemen t of the plans. 

Knowing how a region stands in terms of equity is a critical first step in planning for greater equity. To assist communities with that process, PolicyLink and the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE) developed an equity indicators framework that communities can use to understand and track the state of equity in their regions."
