RESISTING DISPLACEMENT AND DISPOSSESSION
A Planners Network Multi-City Conference
June 21-22nd
Pratt Institute, Higgins Hall, 61 St James Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11238
http://bit.ly/PlannersNetworkNYC

In cities throughout the nation and world people are facing powerful economic and political forces that lead to evictions from their homes and displacement from their communities. In response, people are organizing, resisting, and developing their own plans and policies as alternatives. Join the Planners Network as we explore strategies and affirm that another world is possible!

Seeking to reduce the carbon footprint of the traditional conference, this year’s Planners Network conference will take place over the course of two days in Montreal, New York City and Tacoma and will use telecommunications to share plenaries and conference proceedings.

Speakers and agenda to be announced soon.

TENTATIVE SCHEDULE:

Friday, June 21, 2019: breakfast, welcome and keynote speaker, break-out sessions, teleconferenced multi-city plenary, closing panel and reception

Saturday, June 22, 2019: breakfast, full conference interactive workshop, mobile workshops on the ground led by local community organizations

ABOUT:
Planners Network is an international organization of progressive planning practitioners, organizers, students and faculty, with a mandate to center equity considerations in the planning practices. The main website of the organization is www.plannersnetwork.org

It was established in 1975 in the U.S. during a period of urban renewal when many planning initiatives were displacing lower-income minority communities and a group of academics and practitioners were opposed to the role of planners within such initiatives and sought to promote alternative practices that worked to support those facing exclusion and displacement. The organization also publishes an online magazine called Progressive City: Radical Alternatives (www.progressivecity.net), and there are eight local chapters in the U.S., three in Canada and one in Mexico, as well as individual members that extend as far as South Africa.
