RWID: A Conversation on Spatial Justice

February 24 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

“What if gentrification was about healing communities instead of displacing them?”

Join Richmond Women in Design for a discussion on spatial justice: the idea that justice has a geography and that the equitable distribution of resources and services is a human right. We’ll use Liz Ogbu’s (an architect who works on spatial justice) TED Talk to get the conversation started. “Why is it that we treat culture erasure and economic displacement as inevitable?” she asks, calling on developers, architects and policymakers to instead “make a commitment to build people’s capacity to stay in their homes, to stay in their communities, to stay where they feel whole.”
