Park Equity Summit
June 4, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
The 2019 Park Equity Summit will serve as an opportunity to further our mission and values by convening a collective dialogue between parks, housing, and transportation advocates, developers, government officials, academics, funders, and community members who are working to advance park equity and social justice. The Summit is designed to highlight the work being done by allies, colleagues, and partners both locally and nationally, while honoring new and innovative ideas and approaches to equitable housing and greenspace development in support of transformative community change in low-income communities and communities of color.
The panels will challenge inequitable development patterns and highlight opportunities for cross-sector collaboration with the goal of building bridges across the parks, affordable housing, urban planning, transportation, and environmental sectors, while promoting built environments of the future that reflect and honor the people, wisdom, and history of underserved communities without the threat of displacement.
