Introducing Evan Mancini, Vision Zero Network Intern

This summer, the Vision Zero Network is pleased to welcome Evan Mancini as an intern on our team. A resident of Queens, New York, Evan recently graduated from McGill University where he studied Urban Systems and Political Science.

Transportation issues have been a key focus for Evan since high school, as he has worked with transportation advocates, policy makers and urban planners. He interned at NYPIRG’s Straphangers’ Campaign, assisting with the notorious advocacy group’s State of the Subways Report Card. The experience sparked his interest in urban transportation systems, especially in terms of social justice, equity and safety. Since then, Evan has worked with the New York City Mayor’s Office of Operations as a member of the Vision Zero Task Force, Congresswoman Grace Meng’s Office and Copenhagenize Design Co.

This summer, Evan will provide research, communications and outreach support to the Vision Zero Network. Welcome Evan!
