Throughout the United States, racial segregation was institutionalized by a series of explicit federal, state and local land use policies and lending regulations. Phoenix and Tucson, despite being relatively young cities, did not escape this shameful history. Join ULI Arizona as we take a close look at the legacy of these policies in the evolution of our neighborhoods, and the enduring effects this segregation has had on disparate wealth creation, public health and education of people of color in our cities.
This program will be the first in a series of conversations presented by ULI Arizona to inform, promote new voices, learn from one another, and be a part of the solutions that deliver meaningful change.
Please join us as we learn from two experts in the area of social justice, public policy and community development:
Debi Chess Mabie is Executive Director of The Dunbar Pavilion: An African American Center for Art and Culture; and serves on the Tucson Small Scale Development Coalition.
Rashad Shabazz is the Associate Professor and Faculty Lead – Justice and Social Inquiry, School of Social Transformation; Affiliate Faculty – Geography, School of Geographical Sciences & Urban Planning, Arizona State University; and the author of Spatializing Blackness.
Our conversation will be moderated by Heidi Kimball
, Chair, ULI Arizona; Senior Vice President, Sunbelt Holdings. We look forward to having you join us for this important conversation.
