State of Equity Policy Agenda Release @ Massachusetts State House Room 222
Feb 7 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us for the release of The State of Equity in Metro Boston Policy Agenda 2018.

In 2011, MAPC released “The State of Equity in Metro Boston,” a report providing compelling detail on inequality across many dimensions: housing, transportation, public health, and employment. In response, the MAPC Executive Committee adopted “The State of Equity in Metro Boston Policy Agenda.” In 2017, MAPC produced a five-year update to the State of Equity report which found that some progress had been made and that challenges remain.

The updated equity policy agenda represents a new proposal for collective action to strengthen the region and unlock the potential in all residents across Metro Boston.

To learn more about MAPC’s equity initiatives, visit the Equity webpage.

What is a Health Impact Assessment?

A Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is a process that uses available data, health expertise, and public input to identify the possible health effects of a proposed change. HIAs are used to assess proposals, such as development projects or legislative policies, to produce recommendations that optimize health outcomes.
