‘As Cuomo Shutters Schools in COVID Flare Zones, Ground Rules Lag for Child Welfare Reports During Remote Learning’

The City

October, 5, 2020

Before the start of the current school year, multiple groups had urged the state Office of Children and Family Services to declare that a child’s failure to participate in remote learning should not be enough to justify an investigation. “Black and brown families are still going to be negatively impacted, especially in The Bronx where some of our Wi-Fi issues are worse,” said Baker-Burr…Last week, the groups that signed the letter to the state released new “know your rights” pamphlets help families navigate remote learning, and offer advice on what to do if ACS is called.

‘A punchy new guide from the Center for Urban Pedagogy shows architects how not to be Dicks’

The Architect’s Newspaper

July, 8, 2016

The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) teamed up with the Equity CollectiveChristine Gaspar, executive director of CUPTheresa Hwang, founder and director of Department of Places; and Liz Ogbu, founder and principal of Studio O—and illustrator Ping Zhu to produce Dick & Rick: A Visual Primer for Social Impact Design, a gently didactic pictorial for architects on the dos and don’ts of community-engaged design.

As their names suggest, Dick is the Goofus to Rick’s Gallant. The 15-page spread walks readers through the design process in each architect’s respective office: In a stroll around the neighborhood, Rick spies a flier for a community meeting about parks, and wonders if he could lend his skills to the project. Dick reads a news piece about the same initiative and, pen aloft, offers help to “them.”
