California Community Foundation- Racial Equity in Community Planning
Wednesday, June 23, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
As we pivot to address COVID-19 recovery in our hardest-hit communities, it’s time to interrogate the systems that perpetuate racially disparate outcomes in communities of color. The California Community Foundation (CCF) invites you to join us to learn more about land use policy and emerging best practices to achieve racial equity in community planning.
For generations, policymakers and city planners have shaped Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) communities through policies that perpetuated racial segregation and displacement, leading to housing, environmental, and economic inequities. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated these inequities resulting in the racially disparate impact of the health and economic crisis.
Professor Manuel Pastor, Director, USC Equity Research Institute, will help us frame the conversation and moderate a panel of community activists and policy experts to discuss the legacy of systemic racism in city planning and ways to achieve equity by undoing these systems. They will discuss equitable development, community benefits, cultural preservation, homelessness, and displacement prevention.
