Kristen Jeffers (she/they) presented the framework for her upcoming book and masterclass, A Black Urbanist Journey to an Accessible Queer Feminist Future. In this hour webinar, she went through the three reasons she continues to choose dense urban places, three reasons that folks who are also Black queer feminist urbanists don't, and how everyone listening can create solutions so that more people like Kristen will choose dense urban places. CNU's Desiree Powell moderated.

This webinar is available for 1 CNU-A continuing education credit if viewed live or recorded.
