Equity in Transit Planning: Access, Mobility, and Opportunity for All.
As counties in the Triangle move forward with plans to expand transit options, please join us for a discussion about the importance of incorporating equity components into transit planning. By prioritizing and committing to equitable development, lawmakers can ensure that the benefits of transit investments are broadly shared so low income residents and local small businesses will not be left behind as new opportunities enter the Triangle.
Sarita Turner, Senior Associate at Policy Link, will lead a discussion of strategies for protecting residents and businesses from displacement and for coordinating transit, housing, and jobs policies to enhance connectivity , resulting in strong, affordable, and accessible communities..
Policy Link is a national , equity-focused, research and policy advocacy organization. Ms. Turner is an experienced leader in community organizing, policy advocacy, and fundraising. The program is sponsored by the Coalition for Affordable Housing and Transit, the NC Justice Center, and the NC Fair Housing Center.
Beverages and pizza will be available and brown bag lunches are welcome. Parking is available at the rear of the church.
