AICP | CM: Covid Conversations with APA New York Metro Chapter and PLANRED, Chile

By Alex hinds and Hing Wong, AICP, July 24, 2020

Northern Section’s International Program is co-hosting two “Covid Conversations” with our APA colleagues in New York and the Chilean Planners Network (PLANRED). The first part of the free two-part webinar aired on July 23, and the second part will air on July 30 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am.

The July 23rd session was recorded and is posted at www.covidconversaciones.cl.

It focused on current, compelling topics such as socioeconomic and environmental injustice, racism, social unrest, and violence, and also discussed concerns for freedom, democracy, and governance.

Anthony Drummond was a panelist in Session ONE. Some of you may remember that he is from the Bay Area, went to San Jose State University until 2003, and served on the Northern Section Board as the Student Representative and South Bay RAC. He is currently the Director of Land Use, Housing, and Planning for New York City Council Member Margaret S. Chin (District 1).

On July 30th, Session TWO will focus on housing, transportation, density, climate change, and related social justice issues and responses.
