We are proud to announce that the Regional Equity Atlas 2.0 will be released soon! The Coalition for a Livable Future has championed efforts to update the previous Atlas, which was published in 2007. We are excited to see changes transpire in Portland as the Atlas' findings are incorporated into local policies.
The Equity Atlas is a major research and education project to promote widespread opportunity for a stronger, healthier, and more sustainable Portland-Vancouver metropolitan region. The goal of the Atlas project is to create a better region for all by helping stakeholders around the region promote changes in public policy, planning, and strategic investments to eliminate disparities.
This will serve as a powerful tool for understanding how well different neighborhoods and populations are able to access essential resources to meet their basic needs and advance their well-being.
It includes three main parts:
Community members are invited to attend a release celebration!

We would also like to thank the Coalition for a Livable Future's partners on this project for their efforts: Metro, Portland State University’s Institute for Metropolitan Studies, and the Oregon Health Care Quality Corporation.
