This month, the APA Diversity Committee held the EPOCH Picnic for APA-IL members to gather with aligned professionals from Environmentalists of Color and University of Illinois at Chicago planning students from the Society of Black Urban Planners (SBUP) and Urban Planning and Policy Student Association (UPPSA).

About 25 attendees braved chilly, rainy weather and a last minute location change to Reggies Chicago to say Cheers! Salut! and TGIF. Congrats to the new graduates who joined us on the last day of the semester.

Stay tuned for details about our new Planners of Color event series, hosted by the APA-IL Diversity Committee.
