Hunter College Silberman School of Social Work, New York, New York

Event Type: Conference

Urbanists, lovers of cities, community organizers, policy makers, and urban planners of all kinds–please join the us for the first annual Hindsight Conference on Friday, November 3, 2017!

The American Planning Association’s New York Metro Chapter Diversity Committee has organized Hindsight, a planning conference held in honor of the 100th Anniversary of Buchanan v. Warley (1917), the US Supreme Court decision that invalidated racial zoning on 14th Amendment grounds. This conference aims to not only reflect on the discriminatory history of planning and its implicit (and explicit) role in shaping today’s inequitable neighborhoods, but also to proactively share planning, policy, and community development strategies that work towards more inclusive, just, and equitable communities. The day-long conference will focus on social equity not as an independent topic within planning, but rather, as a critical lens through which all planning and community development be conducted.

This conference was organized by the members of the Diversity Committee of the APA New York Metro Chapter. The event is sponsored by the APA New York Metro Chapter, with additional support by the New York City Economic Development Corporation.
