About URB

Urban Rights Blog chronicles the author’s interest in the struggle over people’s right to public space and essential civil liberties. URB is a compilation of academic and op-ed pieces that discuss preserving the sanctity of public space and re-imagining its role in urban life today through inclusive and innovative planning and policy. She dedicates her work to the ways in which public space, systems, and policy can better function for immigrants, women, and children. Every word is written out of her firm belief that people should not have to live in fear of the elimination or denial of essential civil liberties, and that committing to the preservation of human rights ensures better livelihoods and futures for all.
