Advancing Equity: How can Ohio communities use data to develop solutions and shift power?
Communities need broad access to data and the skills and resources to utilize facts and statistics. Community members can use data to advance local priorities by illuminating racial inequities, building consensus among interest parties, and advocating for shifts in policies and resources. Data is also needed to describe current inequities, identify the systems that created them, and chart a clear path to action (urban.org).
Join OCPIM at our statewide town hall meeting to explore how we can assist communities with accessing data, enhancing skills, and empowering community members to use data to advance equity and improve birth outcomes across neighborhoods throughout Ohio.
