Learning from Berkeley, CA


  • Start: February 25, 2021 1:00 PM

Awareness is growing that the traditional role of police enforcement in traffic safety needs to change. Many communities and organizations are questioning traditional enforcement efforts, such as traffic stops, given the dangers of racial bias and police violence. New models are being explored with the goal of embedding justice and equity within safe mobility strategies, including Vision Zero.

Join us for a discussion of this urgent issue and hear from elected and community leaders in Berkeley, CA, where they are working to shift police-led activities to new models to ensure racial justice in the city’s transportation safety work. We’ll also explore what it means to prioritize “self-enforcing” street designs and policies, in place of traditional, punitive enforcement.

Panelists include:

Rigel Robinson, City Councilmember, City of Berkeley

Lori Droste, Vice Mayor, City of Berkeley & author of city’s Vision Zero legislation

Darrell Owens, Co-executive of East Bay for Everyone
