Dr. Chamard speaks during Jane Jacobs' Anchorage Walk

Dr. Sharon Chamard, Justice Center faculty and president of the Fairview Community Council, commented on Fairview neighborhood history and how the community has responded to social disorder as part of the 2009 Jane’s Walk Anchorage on May 2, in honor of Jane Jacobs' legacy of grassroots city-building. These neighborhood walking tours are held annually all over North America in tribute to and in memory of Jane Jacobs (1916-2006), an urbanist and activist whose writings, including “The Death and Life of Great American Cities,” championed a fresh, community-based approach to city building.
