Recognizing and addressing inequities and injustices in traffic safety efforts must be a priority in Vision Zero work. To this end, many communities are re-thinking the traditional role of enforcement in traffic safety work. We invite you to two upcoming discussions to support critical thinking about – and actions – to ensure Vision Zero efforts are both effective and equitable.

In this conversation, we will be joined by Charles Brown of Equitable Cities, Warren Logan of the City of Oakland and Ethan Fawley of the City of Minneapolis. Our panel will reflect on ways that our work within traditional traffic safety models – particularly related to law enforcement and the criminal justice system – perpetuates unjust and unsafe systems for people of color and low-income people. And, we’ll discuss ways to adjust Vision Zero efforts for positive change. We will email pre-registrants advance materials and ask you to set aside a time to read/reflect before our group conversation.

You can also register for our October 28th webinar, the second in this series focused on Re-thinking Enforcement and Our Role Within Vision Zero / Part 2
