Equity and Texas Children

Opportunity for All Texas Children
Good public policy serves all Texas children well and allows our state to take advantage of the full potential in our people.  We have compiled some resources here to help facilitate work on equity and opportunity. Please contact us if you have suggestions for more items to be added to this list.  
  • Equitable Development Toolkit: Policy Matters has a number of resources, toolkits, and publications that offer tangible strategies and case studies for improving equity in communities.

  • Framing Issues of Race for Public Policy: The Frameworks Institute uses empirical research to determine strategies for improving communications and understanding about policy issues. This web page includes a number of reports and briefs for advocates.

  • KIDS COUNT Data Center: This comprehensive data center on children (maintained with Texas data by the Center for Public Policy Priorities) allows users to find information about children, by race, ethnicity, immigration status, and more.

  • Race Matters: Voices for America's Children and the Annie E. Casey Foundation teamed up to facilitate the creation and broad use of this toolkit for identifying strategies and policy solutions to address inequities for children.

  • YWCAs of Texas: Local YWCAs carry out the mission of YWCA USA to eliminate racism, promoting racial justice through a variety of initiatives, including trainings, workshops, and more. To learn about options in your community, visit the national website and search for your nearest YWCA.

  • Culturally Competent Service Resources: The Maternal and Child Health Library at Georgetown University offers a guide to websites and related professional resources having to do with culturally competent services. The resource brief has an annotated bibliography of these services, links to minority health organizations and non-English-language materials and resources, as well as information about racial and ethnic disparities in health.
