Lori Brown Lecture

March 21 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Everywhere you look

The talk will discuss the various ways Lori has responded to pressing issues of our time. Lori will present an overview of key aspects of ongoing research, advocacy, and activism that have focused on topics from immigration and the border, equity within the built environment, to reproductive justice. All provide various opportunities to intersect with law, policy, and the built environment.

The on-campus activities will be preceded by a workshop and panel discussion co-led by Lori Brown, Distinguished Faculty, Syracuse School of Architecture, and Sarah Wallett, Chief Medical Operating Officer of Planned Parenthood Michigan, on Wednesday, March 20th, from 10:30 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. This interdisciplinary workshop will include experts and students from health care, policy, social work, and the built environment. The event is co-hosted by the Taubman College of Architecture & Urban Planning and Do Good Work.  Anyone interested is encouraged to apply to participate (spots are limited) or register for the panel discussion (hybrid). Lunch will be provided.

Do Good Work will share outcomes and invite students to engage with a portion of the workshop materials in the A. Alfred Taubman Wing Commons on Thursday, March 21st, from 12:00 P.M. to 1:00 P.M. for anyone unable to attend the full workshop. Lunchtime refreshments will be provided.
