DJDS in Bloomberg CityLab

By Patrick Kowalczyk

Nov. 09, 2021

Bloomberg CityLab’s Zach Mortice talked to DJDS’s Deanna Van Buren about the challenges of transforming closed jails into spaces that benefit communities devastated by mass incarceration.

Deanna Van Buren tells Bloomberg: “When you have a system that at its root is structurally racist, your beautification of the infrastructure is not actually dealing with the real issues. As designers, we have to be critical of what systems we’re propping up and what we’re supporting, because architects have always just supported and propped up systems of power.”

Sep. 24, 2021

In 2020, hundreds of people across Brooklyn participated in 32 town halls to debate and develop a new amendment as part of Brooklyn Public Library’s 28th Amendment Project. 

For Constitution Day 2021 (September 17th), PKPR worked with BPL to give the initiative a national boost. Highlights included placing an op-ed by “framer” Susan N. Herman in the New York Daily News and organizing the presentation of the “Brooklyn Amendment” to the office of Representative Hakeem Jeffries, the Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus. Stay tuned for an op-ed by BPL’s László Jakab Orsós on how other libraries can replicate the project in the January 2022 issue of Library Journal.
