Chapter 2 offers a step-by-step procedure for starting a sports equity program in the community. The third chapter discusses using the media to expedite development of sports programs. In chapter 4, a step-by-step procedure for hosting a community-wide conference on equity issues in sports is presented. Chapter 5 highlights the evaluation process for sports programs.
