Call to Action
Organizations that sign on jointly pledge to advocate for equity over the next generation, and call on all implementers of the policies and ideas in the Fourth Regional Plan to:

1. Affirmatively further fair housing by both strengthening disadvantaged communities and opening up exclusionary places.
2. Make decisions more inclusively, from facilities siting, to local land use control, to who gets to participate in local elections.
3. Reduce inequality by expanding access to economic opportunity and eliminating the racial/ethnic/gender/disability wealth and income gaps.
4. Create new relationships between communities, industry and nature to provide dignified, productive and ecologically sustainable livelihoods.
5. Invest in transportation to link all to more opportunities and lower costs for those with the lowest ability to pay.

About Regional Plan Association & the Fourth Regional Plan
On November 30th, for only the fourth time in its hundred-year history, Regional Plan Association released a long-range vision for the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut region's shared prosperity, health and livability, resiliency and good governance. The Fourth Regional Plan proposes investments and policies to ensure the region's success for all residents.

The Plan was produced through an intensive, multi-year process involving research, mapping and analysis from a dozen sources, as well as outreach to thousands of experts, leaders, organizers and community residents from across the region. Across the region, Community Voices Heard, New York Communities for Change, Make the Road New York, Make the Road Connecticut, Partnership for Strong Communities, Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey and Right to the City Alliance were key allies in reaching the grassroots and advocating for equity and inclusion in the Plan.

More than any previous plan, the Fourth Plan emphasizes strategies to arrive at a more equitable future. Equity – when individuals of all races, incomes, abilities, ages, genders, and other social identities have equal opportunities to live full, healthy, and productive lives -- is a central value, one of four, promoted through each of the Plan’s 60 recommendations.

We are recruiting sign-ons to the “Joint Pledge to Promote Equity in the New York Metropolitan Region over the Next Generation,” a commitment to advocate together to undo harms of the past and reduce inequality while the region implements the 4th Plan’s recommendations and the NY-NJ-CT region heads to in 2040.
