Weaving Language Access into Local Projects: A Guide for Cities & Towns @ Zoom (Virtual)
Feb 28 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for the launch of MAPC’s Access Language Guide for Municipalities, a tool to support establishing your Language Access practices. Learn about:

  • Developing an understanding of the needs of your linguistic communities and how to respond to them,
  • First steps you can take towards establishing language access in your community,
  • The intersection of Language & Disability Access,
  • How to staff for Language Access, and
  • Language Access and Events, and so much more!

This Guide will help support you in taking your language access work beyond providing interpretation and translation services within your community to:

  • Developing trust with people who speak different languages,
  • Creating opportunities to celebrate people’s cultures,
  • Investing in building the skills of community members.

Finding the Fit: How Parking Policies Shape Our Neighborhoods and Determine Housing Outcomes @ Fort Point Room at the Atlantic Wharf
Mar 19 @ 8:30 am – 10:30 am
Finding the Fit: How Parking Policies Shape Our Neighborhoods and Determine Housing Outcomes @ Fort Point Room at the Atlantic Wharf | Boston | Massachusetts | United States

 

MAPC invites you to join us for this exciting MetroCommon 2050 Speaker Series event featuring keynote speaker Henry Grabar.

Event Program:

  • Keynote address by Henry Grabar; Slate staff writer, author (Paved Paradise: How Parking Explains the World), and a Loeb Fellow at the Harvard School of Design
  • Panel of municipal planners will discuss how they are taking on the issue of the “perfect parking space”, and advancing sustainable and equitable housing and transportation options.

As cities and towns work to comply with the MBTA Communities Act, this event will focus on how to “right-size” parking for your community while managing this political issue and promoting healthy neighborhoods that are economically vibrant, equitable, and sustainable by design.

This is a free, limited seating event, so we encourage you to register today!
