2021 Mobility Justice Spotlight

July 8, 15, and 22 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM CT

 

You know how it goes. Transportation leaders discuss potential ways to address on-the-ground issues, including equity in marginalized communities. That’s not enough, we need to pass the mic.

The 2021 Mobility Justice Spotlight: Oral Histories for Equitable Futures flips the power structure by giving these communities the power to educate us, the greater transportation industry, about their needs and their efforts to address these needs.

Each Thursday, our host will introduce the nominator—an expert in the equity and mobility justice space. The nominator will introduce the individual or organization that they are spotlighting and our storytellers will take the stage. Afterward, we’ll have a brief discussion and all stories will be featured in SUMC’s Learning Center.

So without further ado, meet the pioneers of the first-annual 2021 Mobility Justice Spotlight!
