Useful Resources: Considering the Impact of Proposed Legislation on Populations of Color

In the the third report from its Race for Results Case Study Series, the Annie E. Casey Foundation describes the use of racial equity impact assessment tools to improve policy making. The report focuses on four areas:

  • Why it is critical to measure the impact of any proposed legislation or change in policy on communities of color.
  • How racial equity impact assessments can lead to smarter and more targeted public investments.
  • How racial equity impact assessments keep decision-making focused on data and facts, not assumptions and long-held subjective beliefs.
  • How advocating and using racial equity impact assessments can position leaders and elected officials as strong champions of equity.
