Planner’s Network, Progressive Planning Magazine and

I was a founding member of Planners Network in 1975 and have been involved with it since. Planners Network is an association of professionals, activists, academics, and students involved in physical, social, economic, and environmental planning in urban and rural areas, who promote fundamental change in our political and economic systems. Between 2002 and 2016, I edited and co-edited Progressive Planning Magazine which later became the online resource, where I continue to help edit.
