APA's first-ever Planning for Equity Policy Guide identifies policy recommendations for planners to advocate for policies that support equity in all aspects of planning at local, state, and federal levels. The Planning for Equity Policy Guide provides specific, actionable policy guidance through an equity lens on cross-cutting topics and areas of planning.
Advocate for an Equity-in-all-Policies Approach
Policy Guide Working Group Co-Chairs Lynn Ross, AICP, and Susan Wood, AICP, preview the equity-in-all-policies approach the guide promotes, how the guide can be used to influence work at the local, state, and federal levels, the people behind the guide, and why planners are the right profession to advance this issue.
This guide was approved by the APA Delegate Assembly on April 14, 2019, and ratified by the APA Board of Directors on May 14, 2019.
