Worth Knowing Wednesdays: Seeking Justice and Showing Communities Love Through Planning


American Planning Association Logo

Community-based organizations have the power to transform their communities, but transformation is not possible without the voices and support of the people that live there - People like YOU!

This podcast talks about Pueblo Planning, an anti-racist, values-driven participatory planning firm. From sharing the planning “origin story” (fighting a sewage sludge treatment plant that was threatening to come into the neighborhood), to musing on why Sherry Arnstein’s 1969 JAPA article on citizen participation is still relevant today, to revealing why Pueblo Planning couldn’t run headlong to the Zoom platform when the pandemic hit, a passion for social justice is displayed that will inspire planners and community members.
