Meet Zi, one of our three youth planning interns!
"I am a planning intern at ACDC, engaging in the planning of building affordable housing in Chinatown to fight displacement of Chinatown residents who are being priced out of their homes. My work on the Parcel 12 project involved engaging the community. Along with different teams, I helped facilitate numerous edible charrettes and other workshops. I also surveyed Chinatown community members on what they would like to see on Parcel 12, as well as compiled and analyzed the data. To me, the Parcel 12 campaign represents the voices of the many people who live in and care for Chinatown. Boston's Chinatown is where I have spent almost half of my life; I am doing all I can to preserve this home of mine."
