Hindsight 2020: Our Health, Our Future

Hindsight Conference is an all-day conference in New York City on urban planning through an equity lens. The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified our nation’s structural inequities, as evident in racial disparities in deaths and access to care, rise in income inequality, and layered on top, police brutality against Black lives. This year’s conference calls for planners and policy-makers to channel our public health roots and re-center environmental justice.

Asserting our vision for the future is necessary to prevent others from taking advantage of crisis to impose their ideologies. Black and Indigenous People of Color; People with Disabilities; Queer, Trans and Gender Non-Conforming Individuals; and other historically marginalized groups, must lead the road to recovery.

Through two half days of virtual workshops, exhibits,  and panels we challenge attendees to build a future where we all not just survive, but more importantly, thrive. We must strengthen our connections to our ancestral struggles, our historic and present-day movements, and one another, in order to build our health and our future.
