The Just Growth Circle (JGC) is a powerful and proven community engagement platform for residents of all races, incomes and backgrounds to influence decision-making about housing and retail development, infrastructure and transportation projects that impact them. The impetus for this effort was the creation of The Partnership for Southern Equity’s Metro Atlanta Equity Atlas (MAEA), which offers a digital, data-rich and accessible resource that can be used to create a fairer, more equitable region.

The JGC works to leverage and influence both development and infrastructure initiatives through community engagement, technical support, research, and collective impact efforts for equitable development. The JGC refers to an ecosystem of approaches initiated to realize communities and regions where residents of all incomes, races, and ethnicities can participate and prosper from decisions that shape the places they live. Equitable development emphasizes that all residents should be protected from environmental hazards and enjoy access to environmental, health, economic, and social necessities such as clean air and water, adequate infrastructure, and job opportunities.
