How can planners, advocates, public officials and urbanists advance the cause of racial justice?
Albus Brooks defeated 38 opponents to be elected to Denver City Council in 2011. Albus fought for Denver’s first and largest affordable housing support fund, championed universal preschool, and led the effort to decriminalize marijuana for 18-21 year olds as a way to make Denver a more equitable city. Currently Albus serves as the Vice President of Business Development and Strategy for Milender White, a development company focused on Southern California and Colorado.
This is part of our “Making Urbanism Antiracist” speaker series; an ongoing conversation on how housing and transit activists must advance racial equity.
