The Changing Face of Urban Planning 

And the Need for Just Environments

Tuesday, September 29. 5:30 - 6:30 pm

Planners seek to anticipate and meet the needs of communities, yet the disproportionate fatality rates of Black and Brown people make us question how we can improve.

How does planning policy relate to the needs of diverse communities? What do planners need to know about transportation planning for diversity and inclusion? What steps can planners take to recognize diversity and resilience in their communities?

Join the online discussion with our panel of practitioners and faculty.
