“Equity is the absence of avoidable or remediable differences among groups of people, whether those groups are defined socially, economically, demographically, or geograph -ically.” from the World Health Organization (WHO)

United Way, Lane County, PeaceHealth, and Trillium have collaborated with community organizations to form the Lane Equity Coalition. This is a coordinated, collaborative group organized at a regional level to advance policies, systems, and environments that address equity. Coalition members include individuals, stakeholders, and organizations with passion, diverse skills, expertise, and influence.

There are significant inequalities in our health and education systems which affect people of color, people with disabilities, those experiencing poverty, and those in the LGBTQ communities. These systems are difficult to change without a coordinated effort.
