As more communities re-think the traditional role of enforcement in traffic safety work, we invite you to the second in a series of conversations about how Vision Zero cities can lead positive change.

Jenn Fox, of Vision Zero Network, will host a panel of city staff who are thinking about and acting on the need to ensure traffic safety efforts, including enforcement, are both effective and equitable. We’ll be joined by Marlon Marion, Equity and Inclusion Manager at the Portland Police Bureau, and Clay Veka of the Portland Bureau of Transportation, who will share learnings from their cross-departmental work. And we’ll hear the perspectives and experiences of two of the longest-running Vision Zero programs in the country with Juan Martinez, of NYC, and Allison Schwartz, of the Seattle Department of Transportation. We’ll discuss ways to align Vision Zero efforts for positive change, in part by recognizing and addressing inequities and injustices in some traditional traffic safety strategies.

You can also register for our September 29 webinar about Re-thinking Enforcement and Our Role Within Vision Zero. We will ­­email pre-registrants advance materials and ask you to set aside a time to read/reflect before our group conversation.
