Created by Boston Architectural College students under the direction of faculty member Scott Fulford, ASLA, this video explores the issues of social and environmental justice and the role of design education in fostering lasting change. Featuring community activist Ivonne Lalyre; practitioners David Lee, FAIA, NOMA; C.L. Bohannon, PhD, ASLA; Kona Gray, FASLA, PLA; and Jessi Flynn; and MLA students Olga Rodriguez and Nizar Abou Ezzeh.

Since completion of the film in October 2020, the Friends of Melnea Cass Boulevard succeeded in forcing the City of Boston to cancel redevelopment plans that would have destroyed hundreds of mature trees in the neighborhood!
