Equity Resources

EC2C has recognized Equity as a main objective in creating long-lasting changes in our systems in Evanston.

To support the work to which we all must commit--individuals and organization alike--we have compiled a living, growing list of resources both for individuals and for organizations in Evanston that provide strategies, discussions, and tools to employ in our collective goal of increasing equity.  

Please use them and let us know how your life and work evolves with their use!  Use our contact form on this site or comment on our Facebook page to keep us updated.  Check back here often for new resources as we add them!
