Punitive and Cooperative Cities with Stacey Sutton
DATE / TIME
Mar 09, 2022 - Mar 09, 2022
The City of Chicago’s automated traffic enforcement fines and fees are disproportionately borne by Black, Latinx, and low-income residents. Simultaneously, Chicago is on the precipice of implementing one of the largest community wealth building initiatives in the country, defined by the city as “an approach to economic development that promotes the local, democratic, and shared ownership and control of community assets in order to transform our economy to be more sustainable and just.” I will discuss these distinctive areas of research in Chicago (and beyond) by drawing on my Punitive Cities and Cooperative Cities frameworks.
