Wondering about the PCSE Scholarship and why we’re asking for your support?
Check out this video of last year’s recipients Aleli Balaguer and Noel Rafael Lopez-Ramis reflect on the PCSE Scholarship, which provides funding for students dedicated to a planning education and practice focused on diversity, justice, and equity. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support future UCLA planning students of color. Any amount is appreciated!
Join PCSE and the Urban Planning PhD program THIS THURSDAY 3/2 for a TEACH-IN on protecting data on race and affordable housing. This is primarily in response to U.S. HR 482, which puts in jeopardy essential data on disparities on race and affordable housing.
The teach-in will take place on Thursday, March 2 from 5PM to 7PM in the 3rd floor Luskin Commons. Dinner will be provided. We hope to see you there!

The Movement for Black Lives recently released their official policy platform with demands for black power, freedom, and justice.
The steering committee of PCSE felt strongly it was our duty to endorse the platform as an organization in order to stand and organize in solidarity. We encourage you to sign on as an individual and share with your own networks: https://campaigns.organizefor.org/efforts/m4bl
