The Equity Network organized the first ever Puget Sound Equity Summit in November 2013 that brought together over 350 community members, policymakers, public agency staff, philanthropy, and other stakeholders to share strategies, connect with other organizing efforts, and discuss next steps for a more equitable region. The summit was a launching point for the next phase of the Network. It brought together various equity efforts in our region, including organizing around education, jobs and economic opportunity, youth voice, preventing displacement, environmental justice, healthy and safe neighborhoods, and multiple neighborhood-based efforts that are getting off the ground and/ or maturing.
Thank you to the Summit sponsors, planning committee, and the many partners that shared their work and organized their communities to participate!
