The Socially Just City displays the work completed for Kareem Usher’s autumn 2021 CRPLAN 6350, The Socially Just City.

This course is designed as an engaged investigation into the relationship between social change and planning. The journey will be co-created, with the intent of better understanding dynamics of power and inclusion both within the field of planning and within our communities at large. In doing so, we embark on new imaginaries—imaginaries that re-present our spaces not simply as anti-racist or anti-colonial but also as just.
