go equity go

Theresa Hwang’s article, Designing for Equity: Using a Civil Rights Framework, is a must-read for anyone invested in the social impact design field. For both new and experienced practitioners the writing provides leadership by shining a light on the knowledge that the field has earned in recent years.

My favorite quote: “Design needs civil rights outcomes, not just functional, programmatic, and aesthetic outcomes. Design can be a strategy to redistribute power and create more opportunities for full participation in the shaping of our built environment, resulting in more equitable neighborhoods and empowered residents.”

Theresa’s article is the third installment of an eight part series on Designing for Equity. Follow them all as they are released.
