Transportation planning has often had destructive consequences for underserved communities. Veronica Davis wants to shed light on those inequalities. In her new book, Inclusive Transportation: A Manifesto for Repairing Divided Communities, Veronica lays out her vision to bring about a new era of transportation planning.
During this webinar, Veronica will explain why centering people in transportation decisions requires a great shift in how transit planners and engineers are trained, how they communicate, the types of data they collect, and how they work as professional teams. She’ll define what “equity” means for a transportation project and how it can create something safer, better, and more useful for all people.
Veronica will conclude with a call to action for transit planners and engineers to reconnect with and help shape communities based on principles of justice and equity.
