Presentation: "Safe, equitable travel in the U.S.: Ideas on how to talk and organize our way there"
Ever wonder why it seems like only a few people truly care about improving the safety of our roadways and the health of our communities? Things like why don't we have more protected bike lanes, safe places to cross the street, more funding for bike, ped, and transit infrastructure and operations? In a conversation with Seth LaJeunesse, Associate Director of Health and Communities Sciences at the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, we'll discuss ongoing research that taps into some of the ways we talk about road trauma and the people who use active travel modes, exploring how we might begin shifting the narrative to foster greater, more widespread interest in the safety and health of our communities.
