To provide an open platform for discussion and aid in identifying potential solutions to improve walkability for ALL, America Walks has launched a new webinar series that integrates literature into a discussion regarding the intersectionality of mobility, race, class, gender, and politics. The quarterly webinar will include an interactive panel of leading scholars, activists, practitioners, America Walks Board members, and policymakers, who will discuss and explore connections between walking and other key topics such as social equity, residential segregation, gentrification, police brutality, and etc. Participants will also be able to engage and ask questions of panelists via chat during the live webinar.
This first discussion explores the intersection of walkability and residential segregation. It will be faciliated by Charles Brown, MPA, America Walks board member and co-creator of this series, and include special guest, Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Government Segregated America. Also joining the panel are nationally-known experts, Tamika Butler, Sahra Sulaiman, and Sonia Jimenez, JD.
