CPR Oral History Project
With the concept of systemic discrimination becoming significantly more prominent in the public dialogue, and, in particular, how the planning practice has contributed to systemic discrimination and, conversely, helped integrate communities, the California Planning Roundtable (CPR) is well positioned to advance the dialogue and help improve understanding among California planners.
CPR has initiated an oral history project focused on identifying how past planning practices have impacted communities of color, as related by those people who have experienced the impacts. The project looks to give voice to people who ordinarily may be reluctant to share their stories, to raise public awareness, and to suggest how planning professionals and policy makers can change their practices in response. A detailed project description is available here.
