Advocacy, our ethical obligation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

AICP Ethics Principle A(1)(f) calls us to see social justice by working to expand opportunity and choice for all, but especially for the disadvantaged by promoting racial and economic integration. A brief review of history would show us that the struggle for social justice is an uphill battle that will require advocacy, not just following the rational status quo. This session will explore the topic of social justice planning and the role of advocacy through the lens of the AICP Code of Ethics. We will explore current planning practices and personal examples of successes and failures. At the end, I’ll facilitate a discussion on key social justice issues (e.g. segregated education systems, affordable housing, access to transportation, school-to-prison pipeline, etc.) and the role of planners in progressing solutions. Attendees will hopefully learn about the role of ethical advocacy in social justice planning and receive applicable steps to move solutions forward.
