Design Assistance, Community Building, Hands-On Experience, Social Equity Planning, Self-Help Housing. The radical democratic context of the US Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s inspired advocacy planners to politicize the field of architecture by working for groups in society who were previously excluded from planning processes.
