Toward Racial Justice

2020-21 Lecture Series

Architecture and urban planning are critical to the shaping of the built environment, each bearing complex histories regarding social justice and the provision of opportunities for all. The 2020-21 Lecture Series at the UB School of Architecture and Planning will focus on racial justice in our disciplines and the broader impacts that the work of architects and urban planners have on historically disenfranchised communities, to generate dialogue and prompt real change.

All events will be presented online

AIA and AICP continuing education credits are available.
