Engaged Members Addressing Social and Economic Challenges
PBCD's goal is to provide a forum where communities in partnership with their political, economic and educational institutions can build strategic alliances that encourages collaboration and resource sharing. Such partnerships would assist communities struggling with a lack of collaboration and grassroots planning due to reduced community participation, and would decrease the breakdown in short- and long-term planning linkages.
As powerful forces in many locations, PBCD members are well suited to exhibit leadership in tackling the pressing social and economic challenges in our communities. Now is the time for planners to engage in major new national initiatives that harness the potential for development and regeneration.
Planning and the Black Community Division is engaged in APA's efforts to advance diversity, inclusion, and social equity in activities across local chapters, our policy and advocacy processes, and throughout our research and education programs.
