Equity in Action: A Conversation Series

Aided by more than 100 advisors, the Metropolitan Planning Council, in May 2018, released a roadmap for a more racially equitable Chicago region. As we continue working closely with partners to implement the two dozen recommendations in the roadmap, we reflect on one of our biggest learnings from this journey: the value of creating and elevating public dialogue on the interlocking issues that define and shape our racial and economic realities. MPC and partners present a dynamic lineup of public events to celebrate progress, examine issues, and hold ourselves accountable for advancing the change that’s needed.
