Dear Progressive Planners and Friends of Jackie Leavitt:

As you may already know, Jackie Leavitt, most recently Professor of Urban Planning at UCLA and friends with many people in planning in both the east and west coasts, passed away on Nov. 27. We are planning a memorial gathering remembering Jackie in New York City to be held Feb. 6.  Below is information about the time and location. If you know of others in the New York area who should know about this event, do please inform them.

Please RSVP to: JackieLeavitt.memorial@gmail.com. Please also send any photos of Jackie you may have to the same email address.

Here are links to the UCLA obituary and a profile of Jackie in the Winter 2008 issue of Progressive Planning:
