Equitable Development Rubric

As our community has continued to struggle against unjust development practices, our education work has increasingly focused on turning community knowledge into tools for organizing and better policy. Our Equitable Development Rubric, and its accompanying framework, offer a foundation for a creative and desperately-needed inclusionary housing policy in Cincinnati. With it, we are educating and strengthening a grassroots push for change at City Hall.

The Rubric and Guidebook and Toolkit is now available to provide all the information you need to start using the Rubric within your neighborhood’s community council. The file contains links to download the forms and tools you’ll use in the process. Contact Jenn Arens with any questions.

We have a limited number of hard copies of the guidebook. If you’d like to request copies for a group or meeting, please fill out this form.

The following videos capture some of what we covered in recent trainings:
