Racism is built into places. It shapes who can live where, how resources are distributed, who gets a say over what happens in places, and more. Places in the United States reflect, perpetuate, and amplify the racism that structures US society. Creating a racially just society requires creating a spatially just society—a society that advances racial justice within and between places.
FrameWork’s new report – The Terrain of Spatial Justice: Cultural Mindsets of Race and Place in the United States – and accompanying strategic brief delve into the cultural mindsets that enable or challenge needed transformations and provide insights on the implications for how we communicate about spatial justice.
