"The Equity + Inclusion category celebrated architects who are giving voices to underserved and victimized communities. The winner, Territory Urban Design Team, empowers high school students to take on public spaces throughout Chicago.

Honorable mention was given to Spatial Practice as Evidence + Advocacy (SPEA), an ambitious spatial analysis and visualization tool created by SITU Research that captures data from various sources to map and document human rights abuses, including confrontations between the public and law enforcement agencies."
