Social Justice and the Built Environment

What is the role of architects and designers in relation to the Muslim travel ban, the border wall proposal, and the shooting of Trayvon Martin? How does the physical fabric of our community reinforce poverty, hinder education, and reduce life-expectancy? Shawn will review his research in these topics, and put forward his proposals for the role of designers in resisting injustice, and promoting social equity.
