About the event

A major urban transition right in one’s own backyard can bring together, or conversely divide, a community, throwing light on the question of what makes a group of people a community. When living standards, livelihoods, access to financial, educational, and other resources are on the line, how a community responds depends on factors that are intangible and powerful. Join community members affected by Atlantic Yards / Pacific Park, including from the Dean Street Block Association, for a conversation about how they have mobilized responses for over a decade and continue to build long-term structural change to benefit the community. Featuring Peter Krashes; Director of Pratt Institute M.S. in Sustainable Environmental Systems, Jaime Stein; and others.
