17. The One Where Sarah Talks to Urban Planner Jenna Tourjé about Making Spaces with People not just for People

<p>Today I am excited to introduce to you my friend Jenna Tourjé. Jenna is an urban planner, facilitator, and community builder. She walks with communities on the path to making healthy, whole, and equitable places. Her goal is to make spaces where everyone belongs, and is involved in shaping the future of their own neighborhoods. She facilitates conversations on systematic change, community development, immigration reform, equity, and coalition-building in neighborhoods and government agencies throughout California. This conversation could not be more timely as the Black Lives Matter movement reminds us of the importance of recognizing privilege, and the necessity of taking a back seat when needed in creating space. I hope you enjoy and are as challenged as I was by &nbsp;this conversation.</p><p>Episode Information</p><p>Introduction Music &nbsp;“it can be done” by Airae via epidemic sound.</p><p>Editing by Steven Burnette from <a href="https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-cult-popcast/id1496284954">The Cult Popcast</a></p><p><br></p>--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/makingspaces/message
