People Behind the Plans: Katanya Raby Continues Equity Work of Civil Rights Giant Al Raby

About This Episode

Urban planner, artist, and activist Katanya Raby joins host Courtney Kashima, AICP, to talk about her work at the Office of the Mayor for the City of Chicago, her time at the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), and her post as executive director of the Al Raby Foundation.

The organization aims to educate different groups — especially young people — about its namesake, Katanya's grandfather, and carry on his legacy of fighting for civil rights and equity for those who have been disenfranchised. The two planners also discuss drone photography, using racial equity impact assessments in public-sector work, and how even children can grasp complex urban planning scenarios.
