Geographers and other spatial thinkers know that a spatial component is often involved in the issues communities experience and the solutions proposed to address them. Questions of access, equity, opportunity are complicated by past and present patterns. How can geographers engage with others to help identify these spatial aspects, communicate them, inform leadership and inform the public? This paper outlines an approach that helps bring geography into the discussions as requested, in advance of requests, or independent of any expressed interest.
