Mobility Equity Symposium
Time: Saturday, June 5th, 10:00am-1:00pm ET
For communities both within the urban core and without, transportation plans and investments often reinforce unequal land-use patterns and result in unequal access to economic and social opportunities. While technological advancements are increasingly offering opportunities to address those inequalities, there is a lack of planning, policy, coordination, and, significantly, communication in order to effectively seize them.
The Mobility Initiative, in partnership with the Sasaki Foundation, is pleased to announce its upcoming Mobility Equity Symposium on June 5th from 10am-1pm to explore exactly these issues as they relate to communities in the cities of Lynn and Malden. Please note that lunch will be compensated.
The Symposium is an opportunity to hear from community members about particular transportation-related needs they have and challenges they face; to engage with local government actors to better understand opportunities and initiatives in the works; and to workshop methods and ideas to address the identified needs and challenges. Participants will be actively engaged throughout the Symposium with the end goal of outlining key areas for future research, innovation, and action.
