Is Equitable Development Possible in the 21st Century? Prospects and Possibilities in Washington, DC9:00am-2:00pmMarvin Center Grand Ballroom, 800 21st St NW, 3rd Floor, Washington DC 20052
On March 27, 2014, ONE DC and The George Washington University will co-sponsor an equitable development symposium entitled "Is Equitable Development Possible in the 21st Century? Prospects and Possibilities for Washington DC." The keynote speaker for this inaugural symposium will be Dr. Angela Glover Blackwell, founder and executive director of PolicyLink. In addition, the symposium will include two panel discussions; one on equitable development at the national level and the other focused on equitable development in the DC region. Panelists will include scholar activists, academics, students, policy advocates and community organizers. (For a full list of panel participants, email email@example.com)
This symposium, which we expect to make an annual event, is intended to build support for equitable development principles, policies, and practices across the United States in general and throughout the DC regional in particular. Similar to the diversity of this symposium's panel discussants, our audience will be a combination of community groups, students, academics, developers, public officials, and other interested residents. Seats are limited at this event. We, therefore, request that you RSVP as soon as possible.
An important feature of this symposium will be the dissemination of ONE DC's "Peoples' Platform" for community development. The Peoples' Platform, keeping consistent with ONE DC's guiding principles, ensures that participants of this symposium will have an opportunity to actively engage in conversation and debate with panelists and other attendees. If you have questions about "Is Equitable Development Possible in the 21st Century? Prospects and Possibilities for Washington, DC?" contact Organizing Neighborhood Equity (ONE DC) (firstname.lastname@example.org) or The George Washington University (email@example.com).
