Tackling Racism in Cycling and Transit-Oriented Development
Presented by the WGBH Network Forum
June 26, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
The recent protests around the world restating that “Black Lives Matter” has ignited candid conversations about racism everywhere. People around the world are just starting to understand how widespread systemic racism and microaggressions have been for people of color, especially Black people. Patterns of exclusion and marginalization have been no different in transportation, including cycling.
Join Los Angeles-based Social Justice Advocate and Consultant Tamika L. Butler, Esq., MassINC’s Dr. Tracy Corley, and WGBH Reporter Bob Seay on Friday, June 26, as we discuss how cycling, transit, and other systems and infrastructure in our cities and neighborhoods perpetuate the excessive monitoring and policing of Black and Brown bodies in public spaces. We’ll talk about these challenges, what more we need to do to bring anti-racist policies and practices to cities across the Commonwealth, and how equitable transit-oriented development can help transform our relationships with each other in public places.
This event is one of a series of TTOD Talks co-produced by the WGBH Network Forum and is based on the MassINC report, From Transactional to Transformative: The Case for Equity in Gateway City Transit-Oriented Development.Click here to register for the webinar.
