Equity Working Group (EWG)


As part of the Regional Planning Working Groups (RPWG), the Equity Working Group (EWG) started in June 2020 as a combination of the former Environmental Justice and Public Health Working Groups. The purpose of the Equity Working Group is to engage stakeholders on SCAG’s regional and local planning activities as well as share efforts across the region to eliminate racial bias and barriers in land-use and transportation planning. National best practices will also be highlighted. SCAG anticipates discussions will focus on equity-related plans, programs, projects, tools, resources, and best practices. Because equity is intersectional, the Equity Working Group will address multiple planning areas, including Environmental Justice (EJ), Public Health, and others.

EWG Meetings are typically held quarterly. To be notified about resources and upcoming meetings, subscribe to updates for the Equity Working Group.

Agendas and presentations can be found on the RPWG webpage.
