Tools for integrating an equity lens

Toolk­it: Every plan­ning process has “choice points” — those places where deci­sions made will either increase or decrease equi­ty. But how does one iden­ti­fy those choice points? And, per­haps even more impor­tant­ly, how does one use those choice points to turn equi­ty from a val­ue to action? This toolk­it from the Spark Pol­i­cy Insti­tute is designed for groups who tack­le com­plex prob­lems and want to inte­grate an equi­ty lens into the deci­sions they are mak­ing. It specif­i­cal­ly looks at how groups can focus on deci­sions made at those choice points to increase equity.
