Advancing Racial Justice, Social Equity, and Human Rights Through Planning: Lessons from Portland
Dr. Lisa K. Bates, Associate Professor in the Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State will discuss her collaborations with community and city planners to use a racial justice lens in urban planning and community development in the City of Portland. This work began with the Portland Plan and continues through the implementation of anti-displacement measures in the City’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan and its community development strategies in North/Northeast Portland. Dr. Bates has participated in this work through advisory and oversight committees, research partnerships, and participating in communities of practice for racial equity work in government. Professor Bates is a nationally recognized scholar in the areas of housing and community development and fair housing, environmental justice, and civil rights in planning. She believes that “We shall seek social justice” is the most important principle in the AICP Code of Ethics for professional planners.
