About this Event

Join us in conversation with U.S. Representative Jamaal Bowman and Julian Brave NoiseCat as they discuss: how can cities tie racial and economic justice to climate action?

The challenges facing New York and cities around the world are manyfold: the public health crises of the pandemic, decades of environmental racism, and a widening racial wealth gap in an urgent economic crisis. In addition, Black, brown, and indigenous communities face the brunt of worsening air quality, extreme heat, and flooding. As we plan for life after COVID-19, there is a unique opportunity to rebuild New York’s economy with bold climate and environmental justice goals in mind.

For our seventh Power After the Pandemic dialogue, our panelists will discuss ways to shift the paradigm of economic growth toward racial and economic justice, explore opportunities to invest in local and national climate infrastructure, and shape strategies to direct good green jobs to frontline communities.

After the discussion Michael Partis, Director of the Bronx Cooperative Development Initiative, and Jainey Bavishi, Resilience Director for the Mayor’s Office of Resiliency, will join as respondents.

Login details for Zoom will be emailed to registrants in advance of the conversation. If you are not a member of ANHD or UDF, we encourage you to contribute $5 or more to support this program.

About Power After the Pandemic

Power After the Pandemic is jointly led by the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development and Urban Design Forum. Our program will build on the foundations of the ANHD’s 10th Annual Community Development Conference and UDF’s City Life After Coronavirus series.

Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to build community power to win affordable housing and thriving, equitable neighborhoods for all New Yorkers. Our members include more than 80 neighborhood-based affordable housing and equitable economic development organizations across New York City, and we use capacity-building, organizing, and policy advocacy to advance our mission.

Urban Design Forum mobilizes civic leaders to confront the defining issues facing New York City’s built environment. We are an independent membership organization that empowers professionals of diverse backgrounds, industries and perspectives to shape a better future for all New Yorkers. We investigate complex challenges in the built environment, study alternative approaches from cities around the world, and advance progressive strategies to build a more dynamic and democratic city.
