Virtual Conference Overview
The American Planning Association’s (APA) Latinos and Planning Division (LAP), with the support of the Texas Chapter, Southwest Section and AARP California, have come together to create a virtual conference focused on bringing diverse Latinx voices across the nation to present our contributions to planning in our communities. LAP is excited to present a multi-part conference event entitled, “L.U.G.A.R.E.S.: Latinidad, Unity, Gente, Advocacy, Resiliencia, Equity, Spaces”. The key objective of the conference is to highlight ways in which planners within and outside of formal planning processes are addressing challenges and issues in their communities and how Latinx planners are, themselves, working to make their communities a better place for all. The event consists of two panel sessions and an open forum, which will be a facilitated dialogue bringing experts in multiple fields to discuss key topics. Participants joining this event will gain new skills and knowledge, learn to implement best-practice tools that would serve Latinx planners and planners working in Latinx communities across the U.S. and beyond.
