What does city planning have to do with movement building? Why should planners care about community organizing? What lessons can community organizers and planners offer each other about creating just development, policy, and distribution of resources in the urban environment?

This four-day symposium is an opportunity for planning students, planners, and community members to hear from community organizers on the intersections between planning and community organizing and begin to imagine the creative, powerful partnerships that are possible—indeed, necessary—to create the cities we all deserve.
