Recode is pleased to welcome panelist speakers Monica-Lewis Patrick, CEO of We the People of Detroit and Cat Goughnour of the Right 2 Root Campaign. Ms. Lewis-Patrick will discuss how decades of planning decisions led predictably to the Detroit and Flint water crises and its relationship to gentrification, displacement, and a regional housing crisis. Ms. Goughnour will share how we can “co-create a people+place-based, health+wealth community stabilization process for Portland’s African American/Black residents to reduce disparities, increase opportunities and generate prosperity.”

This session aims to frankly examine the disproportionate effect that historic and current city planning has on disinvested communities. Through case studies of community-led solutions that address wealth and infrastructure disparities, this session also aims to inform and inspire our own community to collectively do better.
