In the first year of a new decade, 2020 forced many Americans to restrict how we socialize and gather, to stand in solidarity against racial injustice, and to imagine change for the future. The global pandemic, Black Lives Matter Movement, and the Presidential Election reveal a pivotal time for our society and culture here in the United States, asking the question: Who are We the People? This speaker series hopes to explore how this year’s events will reframe social and spatial justice ideologies and practice for architects, urban planners, preservationists, real estate developers, and academics.

Our first speaker is Dr. Guerrero, Associate Professor of American Studies and U.S. Latina/o Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. She will speak briefly on her book Nuevo South: Asians, Latinas/os, and the Remaking of Place, and on the current moment and social justice.
