Smart Growth America’s Equity Summit: Improving racial equity, economic inclusion and restorative justice through smart growth
Smart Growth America deeply believes that improving racial disparities is at the core of a smart growth approach. But what does that mean? How does it work in practice? And how can smart growth advocates do it better?
Join SGA for three straight days January 26th-28th from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. PST for a three-day virtual summit where we’ll convene an exciting group of experts, practitioners and policymakers to discuss how to center improving racial equity in smart growth work. Our impressive lineup of speakers will discuss how to promote equity in housing and land use, why strong Black & brown businesses are key to neighborhood vitality, and how to right the wrongs of past damaging transportation decisions and promote restorative justice. The centerpiece of each day is a discussion between a panel of experts, moderated by a Smart Growth America expert.
