Boost Your Campaigns with the Economic Case for Equity

Telling a compelling story – one that is backed by the facts – is the key to gaining support and winning advocacy campaigns for low-income families. Over the last several years, PolicyLink and its partners have developed a new narrative about why equity – the just and fair inclusion of all – matters for everyone, not just those who are being left behind. It goes like this: as America becomes a majority-people-of-color nation, making sure that everyone can participate and reach their full potential is a national economic imperative.
