Equity Planning

Planning Webcast Series

[Virtual]

Recent events, unfortunately neither new nor novel, lay bare the historical legacy and persistent injustice of systemic racism in American society. The compounded and disproportionate impacts of Covid-19 and political/economic oppression demonstrate how the decisions and actions of those in authority at all levels deny communities of color equitable access to the benefits of citizenship. The planning profession is guilty of contributing to this legacy, through unfair housing policies, exclusionary zoning, capital investment and disinvestment decisions, and infrastructure development, among others. This session will explore how some communities and organizations in the Mid-Atlantic are proactively addressing this legacy and ensuring that equity is included in the planning process from community engagement through development review.
