Sharon Chamard, Justice Center faculty, is participating on the “Social Issues in Anchorage: What we Care About to Inform the Design of Public Spaces” panel at the 2nd Annual Urban in Alaska Conference: A Creative Placemaking Initiative, on March 28 in the UAA Student Union Cafeteria. Dr. Chamard will be part of a "conversation” on homelessness and affordable housing with Dr. Susan Bomalaski, the Executive Director of Catholic Social Services. The purpose of the conference is to bring together faculty, students, and community members in a community-wide participatory process focusing on social issues that impact the design of public space, such as race and ethnicity, youth violence and opportunities for youth, and alcohol and substance abuse and recovery.
