Active Transportation and Equity: Key Challenges and Opportunities from the Field

As the United States is wrestling with race and class in many arenas, these issues have come to the forefront in the world of walking, bicycling, and Safe Routes to School.

Join the National Partnership's webinar to hear why equity is crucial in the world of active transportation, how equity is being prioritized in the field, and learn about best practices in bridging the gap between community need and active transportation's benefits.
