Equity Resources

We seek to ensure that every young person in Evanston has the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential in life. We recognize that this will take time and deliberate, coordinated action from different sectors within our community to accomplish this goal.

Our hope is that these resources and tools may provide insight as well as offer strategies that can be adapted to meet the specific needs of Evanston as we strive to become a more equitable community. We encourage you to visit this section periodically as new resources will be added from time to time.
