Malo Hutson will discuss his book, The Urban Struggle for Economic, Environmental and Social Justice: Deepening their Roots, at the Environmental Design Library on March 15, 2016.
Based on seven years of research, this book draws on a wealth of material to conduct a case study analysis of how 8 low income/mixedincome communities in Boston, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, DC are standing up to city economic development agencies, influential real estate developers, universities, and others to remain in their neighbourhoods, protect their interests, and transform their communities into sustainable, healthy communities.
Prof. Hutson is an assistant professor in the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of California at Berkeley, USA, and associate director of the Institute of Urban and Regional Development. He is also a faculty affiliate of the UC Berkeley/UCSF Medical School Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health and Society Scholars program.
