With growing focus on Vision Zero, there is immense opportunity to address the inequities related to our everyday transportation system. Join our upcoming webinar in which we’ll explore approaches to incorporating health equity in Vision Zero Action Planning and the role Vision Zero can play in addressing disparities in safety, health, and well-being. We’ll explore approaches to incorporating health equity in Action Planning through contextualizing past harms; defining what equity means specific to Vision Zero work; the role of partnerships; supplementing crash data with experience; and prioritizing investments in communities that have largely been overlooked for safety improvements. We’ll be joined by panelists from communities that are prioritizing health equity in their Vision Zero planning and ongoing work including:
- Christine Baker, Vision Zero Program Manager, Department of Environmental Services of Arlington County
- Ethan Fawley, Vision Zero Program Coordinator, City of Minneapolis
- Rob Sadowsky, Transportation Safety Outreach Coordinator, Clackamas County Department of Transportation and Development
