Creating Community Spaces Where All Are
Welcomed and Engaged
We spent a lot of time in April looking at what it means to create spaces where all community members feel welcome, engaged, and able to be physically active. We revisited our Designing for Inclusive Health grantees where communities are using the funds to find ways to engage people with disabilities in planning, and in projects and programs. Our third episode of Walking Towards Justice challenged us to continue to consider ways in which street harassment and other issues create spaces that are unwelcoming and think of ideas to address them. America Walks was inspired attending the Equity Summit hosted by PolicyLink. It reminded us to continue to provide opportunities for our network to learn, engage, and discuss issues facing communities across the US.
