Before you log off for the year, let’s have a conversation about the state of walkability — and get ready to start 2022 on the right track. Join us for a free one-hour conversation with some of the nation’s leaders in public health, infrastructure, and of course, walkability.
Where We’ve Been and What’s Next
The past year has been extraordinarily eventful for the issues we care about. New policy directions from the Biden administration. Changed behavior and changed streets due to the pandemic. Direct actions and proposals to confront racism in public spaces and public policies. A massive infrastructure bill. The promise of a National Roadway Safety Strategy.
It’s been a lot. But what really changed – and what didn’t? And what does it mean for 2022? How can we all get involved in continuing this work?
For our final webinar of the year, America Walks has brought together a panel from USDOT, CDC, local government, and local activism.
- Robin Hutcheson, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Safety Policy at United States Department of Transportation
- Ken Rose Chief, Physical Activity and Health Branch, Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity, CDC
- Arlis Reynolds, Councilmember Costa Mesa CA, and America Walks Board Member
- Louise Lockett Gordon, Director of Bike Walk RVA, Richmond VA, and America Walks Board Member
- The event will be moderated by our own Mike McGinn, Executive Director of America Walks.
The hourlong discussion will cover walkability wins, what happened, and more importantly, what’s next.
The details are as follows:
11am – 12pm PST | 2pm – 3pm EST
RSVP today and we’ll send you a reminder email in advance.
