The Regional Equity Atlas 3.0 is coming soon—stay tuned!

Since 2007, Portland's Regional Equity Atlas has used maps, policy analysis, and community-based research to promote widespread opportunity for a stronger, healthier, and more sustainable region. Now entering its 10th year supporting community-based advocacy, it's time to update our data, indicators, and Atlas tool in partnership with the communities most impacted by disparities.

Our project transition team — the Coalition of Communities of Color, Ecotrust, Futurewise, and 1000 Friends of Oregon — is hard at work, and looks forward to debuting a new iteration of the Regional Equity Atlas soon! In the meantime, if you're seeking information from previous versions of the Regional Equity Atlas,or to learn more about the project, please contact Brody Abbott, of  Ecotrust via email at babbott@ecotrust.org or by calling 503.227.6225
