Event description


The Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust Presents, the 2019 Park Equity Summit:

Strengthening Communities Through Equitable Development

Co-hosted by L.A. Department of Recreation and Parks

The 2019 Park Equity Summit will serve as an opportunity to further our mission and values by convening a collective dialogue between parks, housing, and transportation advocates, developers, government officials, academics, funders, and community members who are working to advance park equity and social justice. The Summit is designed to highlight the work being done by allies, colleagues, and partners both locally and nationally, while honoring new and innovative ideas and approaches to equitable housing and greenspace development in support of transformative community change in low-income communities and communities of color.

The panels will challenge inequitable development patterns and highlight opportunities for cross-sector collaboration with the goal of building bridges across the parks, affordable housing, urban planning, transportation, and environmental sectors, while promoting built environments of the future that reflect and honor the people, wisdom, and history of underserved communities without the threat of displacement.

Panelists and speakers will present equitable development frameworks, share best practices and lessons learned, and promote an ongoing conversation within the context of the Summit’s theme: Strengthening Communities Through Equitable Development. The goals of the 2019 Park Equity Summit are to 1) educate participants about the resources available for equitable development projects and opportunities for intersectional advocacy, 2) build and expand a cross-sector network of equity advocates, and 3) provide attendees with tools to transform communities through community-driven project design.

The Summit will include several breakout sessions that will provide attendees with an opportunity to further explore, debate, and grapple with presented topics, while providing feedback and additional lessons learned on the ideas and topics presented during the keynote panels.
