Wednesday, November 18 @ 1-2 p.m. PT / 4-5 p.m. ET

 

We will learn about a new report focused on the transportation inequities experienced in Latino and low-income communities, as well as the recommendations to build more equitable, healthy, and inclusive communities and transportation networks. According to the report, Latinos in the U.S. are more likely to not have a vehicle than their white peers, and Latinos in urban areas are more likely to rely on public transit. At the same time, Latino communities are marked by transportation inequities, including greater distances to essential destinations, unsafe streets, unsafe walking and biking environments, and limited access to reliable and frequent public transit.

The report was developed by Salud America! and partner organizations, with the goal of reaching and influencing policymakers, land use and transportation planners and engineers, public health and planning scholars, developers, professional member organizations, and public health, social justice, and housing advocates.

Join us to learn from report author Amanda Merck, with Salud America! Latino health equity promotion program at the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio, and contributor James Rojas, founder of Place It!, a design- and participation-based urban planning practice.
