Equity refers to proportional representation (by race, class, gender, etc.) of opportunities in housing, healthcare, employment, and all indicators of living a healthy life.  When talking about equity, it is helpful to distinguish it from equality.  Equality is typically defined as treating everyone the same and giving everyone access to the same opportunities. Equity is about fairness; it ensures that each person gets what they need.  To achieve equity, policies and procedures may result in an unequal distribution of resources, but will lead to equitable outcomes for all.  The resources below include information and tools to help communities ensure they are integrating equity into all conversations and practices generally and during their COVID-19 response.
