A collective of Planning students/faculty at UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs have put together a very insightful primer for Planning rooted in Abolitionist/Anti-Oppressive praxis.

"This resource guide outlines the first steps the UCLA Abolitionist Planning Group has taken to understand Trumpism as a moment in United States politics. Building on long-standing exclusions, Trumpism consolidates power through white supremacy, misogyny, nationalism, xenophobia, corporatism, and militarism. Committed to a philosophy of abolitionism, the Abolitionist Planning Group seeks to understand how urban planning, as discipline and professional practice, can analyze and address the systematic oppressions expanded and institutionalized by the new administration."

A must read for practitioners who may be looking for guidance in these uncertain times.
