As a result of systemic bias, people from often-marginalized groups—low-income populations, communities of color, and/or people that are differently abled—may have a different association with mobility and public space than people from other groups. To address the challenges these groups face and yield inclusive, equitable results, cities are beginning to approach transportation planning through an intersectional lens.
This session will profile cities that are bringing community empowerment, data, and organizing together to produce policies, programs, and infrastructure that more fully incorporate community needs and visions. Panelists will share their process to apply intersectionality to transportation planning, as well as the results of their efforts.
Session Format: Interactive panel discussion & audience Q&A
