Dinner Disrupted: Zoning for Resiliency

Thu, February 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Emily DiSalvo, Peter Harrison, and Kevin Kurian of DesegregateCT will discuss how restrictive zoning laws, from minimum lot sizes to a lack of multi-family housing, increase emissions and exacerbate global warming. The group’s research into the link between zoning and the environment will be presented. DesegregateCT will also discuss the potential of policies like transit-oriented communities and minimum lot size reform to create a greener, more equitable Connecticut.

DesegregateCT is a pro-homes coalition of neighbors and nonprofits advocating for more equitable, affordable, and environmentally-sustainable land use policies in Connecticut, with a focus on expanding the diversity and supply of our housing stock. Formed in June 2020, in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd and the renewed conversation on racial justice, their work is about first imagining and then enacting a new vision for local and state land use policies that promotes racial, economic, and climate justice.  They leverage original research and grassroots organizing in service of public education and policy change at both the state and local levels.
