Geography for Inclusion


Geographers Make a Difference

The AAG has an obligation to illuminate the importance of geography to our elected officials as they work toward comprehensive and systemic change. Our nation’s history with race is intertwined with geography at every chapter, and public policy that aims to advance equality and rectify deep-seated injustice must take into account geospatial history and context.
