Design for the Just City with Toni L. Griffin

Join the Metropolitan Planning Council and Toni L. Griffin for an evening of frank discussion and reflection as we delve into the challenges—and advantages—of how a city functions.

Toni L. Griffin, director of the J. Max Bond Center on Design for the Just City at the City Colleges of New York, brings a unique perspective to these questions from her experience as a placemaker in Chicago, Detroit, Newark and Washington, D.C. With a deep conviction that issues of inequality—and the resulting segregation and isolation—can be addressed by better planning and urban design, Griffin has worked throughout her career to improve the spaces we exist in every day.

The program will begin at 5:30 p.m., with time to mingle before and after. So come and enjoy a drink, a talk and good company!
