MD APA Presents: Responding to Civil Unrest through Community-Led Planning on 5/24/2016. Info is here
Last year, Baltimore joined the ranks of U.S. cities that have witnessed community unrest sparked by tragic events involving engagement between law enforcement and members of the black community. APA-Maryland and the Baltimore AIA have convened a panel to discuss the role planners play in creating and supporting policy and development decisions that result in urban design challenged environments that foster social inequity and factor into displays of civil unrest. This discussion also will focus on how planners can take a central role in rebuilding efforts and creating more sustainable environments following incidents of community unrest. 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
