Transportation Inequities: What’s Data Got to Do with It? with Tamika Butler
DATE / TIME
Mar 30, 2022 - Mar 30, 2022
Join national transportation expert, Tamika Butler, to talk about transportation inequities and how data exacerbates those inequities. Tamika will lead us through a conversation focused on the way that white supremacy and structural racism have shaped transportation and the built environment throughout the history of the United States. She will touch on the ways that engagement, data, and policy have added to these disparities and challenge us all to think about data differently.
