Healthy City is a program of the Advancement Project, a civil-rights nonprofit. In our California office we also have an Urban Peace program that strives to reduce the cycle of violence, an Educational Equity program that seeks to expand educational opportunities for low-income children, and an Equity in Public Funds program that increase transparency, accountability, and equity in the use of public funds.
Viewing point and thematic data together enables you to get an initial picture of the distribution of resources, while understanding a particular characteristic about an area. For example, are there educational resources in areas with low educational attainment? Is there access to fresh food in areas with a high concentration of people with diabetes?
