Smart Growth America's Equity Summit

VIRTUAL EVENT
January 11-13, 2022
Early bird registration closes November 24th

At Smart Growth America, we deeply believe that improving racial disparities is at the core of a smart growth approach. But what does that mean? How does it work in practice? And how can smart growth advocates do it better?

Last year Smart Growth America (SGA) hosted our first-ever Equity Summit to bring a discussion of racial equity to the smart growth movement and make the case that smart growth without a focus on equity isn’t smart growth at all. Speakers discussed how to promote equity in housing and land use, why strong Black and brown businesses are key to neighborhood vitality, and how to right the wrongs of past damaging transportation decisions and promote restorative justice.

The 2022 Equity Summit will be held (virtually) from January 11-13, 2022. Over three days, you’ll hear keynotes on equitable development and panels curated by our economic development, transportation, and land use teams.

Early bird registration is extended!
Reserve your spot at a discounted rate by registering now before November 24. Rates go up slightly after that date until registration closes in January. Tickets give you access to all three days of the Summit. 

Majora Carter will give the Equity Summit primary keynote during the first half of day one (January 11, 2022). Majora Carter is a real estate developer, urban revitalization strategy consultant, MacArthur Fellow, and Peabody Award-winning broadcaster. Read her full bio in the “speakers” tab.
