Description

Want to Increase Community Safety? How about improve public mental health and wellbeing?

Please Join Us for a Half-Day Workshop Examining the Potential to:

(1) utilize planning/land use and public health tools to improve communuity safety and wellbeing; (2) increase community engagement in planning and public health processes to create healthier neighborhoods; (2) address community violence through policy, planning and public health.

This workshop is one in a series of professional development opportuntities for 'planners' and public health practitioners'. The name of the series is "The Intersection of Planning and Public Health". Our speakers will illuminate the connections between land use decisions, crime, trauma, violence prevention, and public health. Participants will learn about community-based initiatives in Los Angeles that prevent violence through land use approaches, and innovative land use policies that center equity, safety, and health. Together with participants, speakers will explore how people working on land use, transportation, food, housing, violence prevention, public health, and more can effectively collaborate to support community safety and wellbeing, and scale-up successful programs into policy and systems change.

Who should consider attending?

This workshop is intended for urban/regional planners, public health professionals, mental health professionals, educators/school teachers, maternal and child health advocates, family and youth service providers, housing professionals, injury prevention professionals/organizations, law enforcement, students (undergraduate and graduate), prevention specialists, alcohol/substance use prevention professionals, park and recreation personnel (e.g. Parks after Dark and Saturday Night Lights), and domestic/family/intimate partner violence professionals. However, everyone interested in exploring how to increase community safety and well being through planning x public health, is welcome.

Introduction

Violence is preventable, yet it is a persistent problem in the US, and globally. Land use and planning strategies can profoundly shape how communities are designed, whose perspectives are included in planning processes, and how land use policies are implemented. With an eye toward creating safer communities for all residents, practitioners working to prevent violence can—and should—work alongside planners and policymakers to enhance community safety. Land use decisions and investments can either perpetuate historical inequities or uplift resources, institutions, and opportunities that foster civic participation, community connectedness, and neighborhood empowerment—all key violence prevention strategies.
