About the Fellowship
The 2022 MICD Just City Mayoral Fellowship is a collaboration between the Mayors’ Institute on City Design (MICD) and the Just City Lab at the Harvard Graduate School of Design taking place in Spring 2022.
The 2022 MICD Just City Mayoral Fellowship will help mayors navigate a just and equitable recovery from the pandemic, providing actionable ideas for city leaders rising to meet this moment of change. Building on the inaugural 2020 Fellowship, this program will explore ways to create lasting, transformational impacts from new federal funding streams such as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the American Rescue Plan Act. The Lab’s Just City Index will frame dynamic presentations and dialogues with experts in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, art activism, housing, and public policy. Over the semester-long program, mayors will identify how racial injustices manifest in the social, economic, and physical infrastructures of their cities and develop manifestos of action for their communities.
The 2022 MICD Just City Mayoral Fellows include Charleston, SC Mayor John J. Tecklenburg; College Park, MD Mayor Patrick L. Wojahn; Duluth, MN Mayor Emily Larson; Madison, WI Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway; Providence, RI Mayor Jorge O. Elorza; Richmond, VA Mayor Levar M. Stoney; Salisbury, MD Mayor Jacob R. Day; and Youngstown, OH Mayor Jamael Tito Brown.
