Join us on April 29th from 6:30-8 PM for a crucial dialogue on transportation. Access to transportation profoundly influences various facets of our lives, including employment, healthcare accessibility, and children's education. Recognizing its profound impact, achieving transportation equity is pivotal in eradicating racism and advancing gender empowerment. It is imperative to reimagine our approach to infrastructure, including roads, buses, and sidewalks, to rectify historical injustices like segregation and address current disparities such as limited access to safe transportation in marginalized communities and incidents of sexual harassment on public transit. Moreover, there is an urgent need to address unsafe road conditions for pedestrians, particularly in underserved areas. These disparities disproportionately affect people of color and individuals from low-income backgrounds, exacerbating economic and social inequalities. By collaboratively engaging in this conversation, we have the opportunity to shape transportation systems that not only enhance mobility but also serve as agents for broader societal transformation. Let's foster inclusivity, justice, and empowerment for all through a robust discussion on transportation. As part of our Racial Justice Challenge's concluding week, we are honored to host esteemed guest speakers who will shed light on how access to transportation impacts our lives: La Vaida Owens-White, Board President of Delaware Ecumenical Council on Children and Families Marissa McClenton, Environmental Justice Associate Organizer at the Sierra Club, Delaware Chapter Sean T. O'Neill, Policy Scientist at the Institute for Public Administration (IPA) at the University of Delaware and President of the Delaware Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA). Join us as we delve into the critical importance of achieving transportation equity in dismantling racism and empowering women.
