Access and Equity: An Urban Harbor that Serves All

Access and Equity: An Urban Harbor that Serves All

The New York-New Jersey Metropolitan Region is diverse in many ways – geographically, ecologically, and demographically. We should aspire to a waterfront as diverse as the communities that surround it. This panel explores diversity in its broadest and most ambitious terms – from diversity in planning, to jobs and employment opportunities, and at environmental institutions. How can we ensure our waterfront reflects the diverse communities that surround it? What role does community involvement play in ensuring diversity and what steps should organizations and government agencies take to improve their ability to meet the needs of communities?
