Building an Equitable Economy from the Ground Up

Cities must lead the nation toward inclusive prosperity.  As America undergoes a profound demographic shift amidst rising inequality, persistent racial inequities, and an economy being transformed by technology, equity – just and fair inclusion – is both a moral imperative and the path to a prosperous, inclusive new economy.

Cities – with their economic power, diversity, and policy innovation – must lead us forward. By embracing equity as a core operating principle and implementing policies to ensure low-income people and communities of color can reach their full potential, cities can forge new models of equitable growth.

The All-In Cities initiative at PolicyLink and our underlying policy agenda equip city officials, community advocates, and civic leaders with policy ideas, data, and strategy support to build equitable, thriving cities for all. We advance this work by using disaggregated data to understand challenges facing communities, develop solutions, track progress, and move toward results at scale.
