Cities for Life: How Communities Can Recover from Trauma and Rebuild for Health

Jason Corburn

  • Author, Professor

Jason Corburn is a professor of urban planning and public health at UC Berkeley.

His new book, Cities for Life, investigates communities working to heal from trauma—from gun violence, housing and food insecurity, and poverty. In this talk, Corburn will discuss how cities can confront discriminatory, exclusionary, and racist urban institutions, and instead, promote healing-focused practices.

Moderated by Deirdre Pfeiffer, associate professor for the ASU School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, this event is in partnership with Island Press, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that shines a spotlight on crucial issues and focuses attention on sustainable solutions.

You can purchase Cities for Life from the independently owned Changing Hands Bookstore, HERE.

This event is in partnership with ASU's Sustainable Cities Network.
