  • Black Lives Don't Matter in APA's Colorblink Planning: APA Rejected Legislative Policy Guide on Criminal Justice | Progressive City: The American Planning Association (APA) views itself as a membership organization that offers opportunity for education and advocacy on behalf of the planning movement. However, the APA is more a trade organization concerned about standardizing the profession rather than challenging its members and the public through education and advocacy on the ability of planning to directly address race and institutional racism. Put another way, the APA neither advocates nor establishes policy for the explicit benefit of the African American community. This explains why many mainstream planners and our premier planning association choose not to promote restructuring of the US criminal justice system.
