Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

PCC Sylvania’s Social Sciences Division hosted a presentation by the Coalition for a Livable Future on their newly released Regional Equity Atlas 2.0. Based on current, regional data, the Regional Equity Atlas project uses maps, policy analysis, community based research, and other tools to assess how well different populations across the four-county Portland-Vancouver metro region can access resources necessary for meeting their basic needs and advancing their health and well-being. The presentation provided an overview of the Equity Atlas project, a summary of key maps and findings, and an advanced demonstration of how to use the online mapping tool. All PCC staff and students and community members were welcome.

6. Project status
A fascinating presentation, with a skilled presenter, but it was poorly attended, due to bad whether. The 7 people who attended said that they gained a lot though.
