ACD seeks to convene community designers to share their experiences in community-based participatory practice, and collectively explore the legacy of work done under the mantra of "community design."

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Ray Suarez, Senior Correspondent for NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and author of The Old Neighborhood: What We Lost in the Great Suburban Migration 1966-1999.
