What: The Equity Atlas explores equity in the Portland metropolitan region, compiling data on demographics, transportation, housing, schools, health, and access to food and natural areas. You can read more about it at

The Introductory Session hosted by the Johnson Creek Watershed Council Land Use Committee is designed to help groups consider how the Atlas can support their work for healthy and sustainable communities. In addition, groups that participate in Introductory Sessions will be invited to attend one of our "Solutions Workshops", which start this fall. These workshops will bring together organizations and activists from across the region to formulate public policy strategies to advance regional equity in the
Portland-Vancouver metro area.

If you or anyone at your organization is interested in attending this
event, or if you have any question please contact or telephone 503.294.2889.
