6 Wins for Social Equity Network


The 6 Wins for Social Equity Network is made up of the following 21 social justice, faith, public health, and environmental organizations who work together to ensure that the Bay Area’s transit, housing, jobs, and sustainability policies break the patterns of segregation, sprawl, and pollution that have disadvantaged low-income communities and communities of color for generations:

We came together in 2010 to ensure that regional planning in the Bay Area advances:

  • Affordable Housing
  • Robust and Affordable Local Transit Service
  • Investment Without Displacement
  • Healthy and Safe Communities
  • Economic Opportunity
  • Community Power

Our voices are many and our perspectives diverse. But we all agree that the Bay Area’s regional transportation, land-use, and housing plan, known as Plan Bay Area, must serve residents of ALL races and incomes equally. It must address the climate crisis and decades of structural inequities, while avoiding creating new inequities.

By working together, we can build a stronger, healthier, and more equitable future for everyone. Our campaign work – such as the development of the Equity, Environment and Jobs (EEJ) scenario for Plan Bay Area – demonstrates that a regional policy agenda driven by grassroots, community-identified needs will produce the most equitable plan for the Bay Area. That means more affordable housing, fewer displaced residents, more transit service (especially local bus service), healthier air, and the greatest reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
