Let’s talk Social Equity


Achieving Social Equity in Complete Streets

Complete Streets aim to serve all people safely. In order to achieve social equity, transportation systems need to be planned and designed to serve all users, including diverse communities. As places become more accessible they become more attractive; how does revitalization and displacement work within the social equity equation?

Join our panelists at Street Lights: Illuminating Implementation and Equity in Complete Streets as they explore the social value of the Complete Streets approach in the implementation of transportation infrastructure and programs. We’ll be joined by:

Charles Brown, Senior Researcher, Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, @ctbrown1911 (confirmed)
Naomi Doerner, Principal Planner, Equity Strategist, Seneca (confirmed)
Max Podemski, Planning Director, Pacoima Beautiful (confirmed)
Stephanie Ramirez, Associate State Director of Community, AARP California, @StephRami8 (confirmed)

Taking place on November 15, 2016 in Sacramento, CA, Street Lights will be a chance for transportation planners and engineers, community, equity, and health advocates, local officials, and Complete Streets practitioners to share ideas, brainstorm solutions, and celebrate the success of the Complete Streets movement nationwide.
