WEBINAR: Equity and Walkability: Improving Pedestrian Infrastructure in Underserved Neighborhoods

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
HOSTED BY SMART GROWTH ONLINE
 
National conversations about equity have expanded into the pedestrian realm and have prompted increasing numbers of communities to examine how to improve pedestrian infrastructure in underserved neighborhoods.
 
Nondrivers represent nearly one quarter of the population and yet often are not included in planning and policymaking discussions. This session will look at how nondrivers are organizing to improve pedestrian infrastructure to better serve people of all ages, as well as those who cannot drive, do not have access to a car, or who cannot afford to own or maintain a vehicle.
 
The 10 Minute Walk program is an innovative approach to help ensure that all community members have easy and safe access to parks and green spaces. A coalition of mayors and stakeholders is working to achieve universal park access and create an equitable, safe, resilient, and healthy environment for communities to thrive. Tune in to learn more about this great initiative.
 
Finally, for two decades, James Rojas and John Kamp have been looking to art, creative expression, and storytelling to shake up the classic community meeting. They will share their insights, experiences, and provide pointers for building common ground and inviting active participation among diverse groups.
 
Panelists:
  • Anna Ziwarts, Director, Disability Mobility Initiative Program
  • Christina Jang, Technical Assistance Program Manager, Trust for Public Land
  • James Rojas and John Kamp, Place It!
