1 AIA/CES LU Available
Last year, Baltimore joined the ranks of U.S. cities that have endured community unrest sparked by police brutality and fueled by a long history of social inequity. APA-Maryland and AIABaltimore have convened a panel to discuss the role planners play in creating and supporting policy and development decisions that result in environments fomenting social inequity. This discussion also will focus on how planners can take a central role in rebuilding efforts and creating more sustainable and equitable environments.
Speakers for the evening will be Tracee Strum-Gilliam, Director of Mid-Atlantic Client Solutions at PRR, JC Faulk, Community Organizer and founder of An End to Ignorance and Circles of Voices, Seema Iyer, PhD, associate director and research assistant professor for the Jacob France Institute in the University of Baltimore?s Merrick School of Business, and Tonya Sanders, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Morgan State University School of Architecture and Planning
