MICD Just City Mayoral Fellowship

Date: Fall 2020

The inaugural MICD Just City Mayoral Fellowship, a collaboration between the MayorsInstitute on City Design (MICD) and the Just City Lab at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, took place virtually in Fall 2020.

Using the MICD model, this unique and highly interactive program brought together a small group of mayors and design experts to directly tackle racial injustices in each of their cities through planning and design interventions. As COVID-19 brought disproportionate harm to the health and economic well-being of Black residents and the national protests around policing and public safety affecting African-Americans continued, this program focused on planning and design solutions for the neighborhoods where these injustices play out. During the program, each mayor selected a neighborhood in their city that has historically seen under-investment and received expert feedback on applying the language and tactics of racial justice to the neighborhood’s future.
