Pandemics, Protests and Planning: Understanding the intersection between health, racial equity and urban planning
Join the Prince George’s County Planning Department’s Speaker Series for a panel discussion putting into context the historical and political roots of the effects of the current Covid-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests in the United States. Facilitated by regional and national experts, we will explore the role that urban planning has played in exacerbating health and racial inequities in African-American communities and discuss ways that urban planning can be used as tool to ameliorate these challenges.
