What is Latino Urbanism?
Latino Urbanism is a broad term used to categorize the multiple practices by which Latinos have created and contributed to the forms, functions, and cultural landscapes of American cities.
Hired in the 1970s to engage residents through a cultural and ethnic approach, Raul Escobedo was one of Los Angeles City Planning’s first influential Chicano planners. During his time with the Department, Raul successfully encouraged high numbers of Latino residents to participate in the planning process for the first time.
