The APA Minnesota Metro Directors are sponsoring a Brown Bag Lunch Event on Friday, February 17th. Mr. James Rojas will present Latino Urbanism and Engagement. Mr. Rojas is one of the few nationally recognized urban planners to examine Latino cultural influences on urban design and sustainability in the US. He has written and lectured extensively on how cultural, social, and economic needs are transforming the American front yard and landscape. He uses this knowledge to help low-income Latinos articulate their voices in the planning process. Mr. Rojas has lectured and facilitated workshops on this topic at MIT, Berkeley, Harvard, Cornell, and numerous other universities, schools, and public forums. His research has appeared in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Dwell, Places, and more.
Please see flyer for more information about this event. CM credits will be available. Also, please RSVP your attendance.
