It's time for an honest conversation about justice in Philadelphia. Let's acknowledge the role of design in perpetuating inequities, such as access to quality housing, green space, education, and health care. What policies can be leveraged to address these issues in our neighborhoods? How can architects position themselves to advance equity in our communities? While serving the needs of clients, how can we also serve the greater needs of society?

Panelist include:

James Crowder, Senior Associte, PolicyLink

Ximena Valle, AIA, Founding Principal, FIFTEEN ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN

Dozie Ibeh, Associate Vice President, Project Delivery Group, Temple University

Rashida Ng, NA, Associate Professor and Chair of Architecture and Environmental Design, Temple University

Moderated by: Tya Winn, NOMA, Incoming Executive Director of the Community Design Collaborative
