About the event

Latino communities often take community development into their own hands with active placemaking often referred to as ‘Latino urbanism.’ This panel is about how planners can learn to tap into this energy to activate and engage Latinos in planning processes. 

Latino communities marginalized by planning processes often take community development into their own hands, particularly where policies like redlining and urban renewal interfere with robust economic and community development. Serving the internal needs of Latino communities, these activities include creating small, locally owned businesses, high levels of pedestrian activity, street vending and home-based selling, high density housing and accessory dwelling units, socially engaged front yards, and intense use of public space.

The APA-IL Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee (D/E/I Committee), in partnership with DePaul’s Chaddick Institute, will be hosting a live, in-person viewing of the Engagement Techniques for Latino Communities webinar. 

Thank you to the Chaddick Institute for sponsoring this viewing!
