Monique G. López is a Social Justice Planner and founder of Pueblo Planning, an anti-racist values-driven participatory planning and design firm. Monique intentionally engages and includes communities that are often left out of the planning process and who are most vulnerable to the impacts of planning decisions.
These communities include Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQ, unhoused, and other communities that experience marginalization. Monique utilizes storytelling and participatory art-making to engage communities in the planning process in order to dismantle unjust systems and co-develop equitable communities. For the past 15 years, Monique has been a social justice planner and policy advocate working on transportation justice, environmental justice, and public space access projects, plans, policies, and designs. Monique also brings this justice-centered approach and practice into the classroom as a lecturer at San Diego State University, Antioch University, Pitzer College, and Cal Poly Pomona.
