City Planning in Place: Prioritizing Equity, Racial Justice, and Community

LEARNING AREA: Community Organizing and Planning
MKI Training


3 hours




This innovative training series is a three-part virtual training that will cover an introduction to the planning field, the historical evolution of planning in the context of systemic racism and efforts for equity, and community planning, through which we support residents to engage in the planning process and advocate for their needs. The interactive course will allow participants to gain perspectives from across the planning field. This training is ideal for people who are not currently practicing planners (staff members of CDCs, nonprofits, and those whose professions intersect with planning, such as community organizers and engagement professionals).
