A TED Talk featuring┬áLiz Ogbu, an architect who works on spatial justice: the idea that justice has a geography and that the equitable distribution of resources and services is a human right. She asks, “why is it that we treat culture erasure and economic displacement as inevitable?” She calls on developers, architects and policymakers to instead “make a commitment to build people’s capacity to stay in their homes, to stay in their communities, to stay where they feel whole.” Watch now.
