#SaludTues Tweetchat: How to Address Transportation Equity for Latino Communities
October 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Latinos face many transportation inequities that impact their ability to build health and wealth.
This is due in part to a lack of diversity among decision makers, planners, and engineers and ethnocentric policies, projects, and investments that reinforce the auto-centric status quo.
Ultimately, past and present planning practices have failed to be inclusive of Latino needs, failed to represent historic and existing inequities, and failed to responsibly evaluate and measure impacts, targets, and performance.
Two new reports from our year-long workgroup of planners and planning scholars provide recommendations to prioritize Latino experiences and needs in the planning process; address inequities and promote racially/economically mixed communities, and modify metrics used to determine impacts, establish targets, measure performance, and score and prioritize projects.
How to Address Transportation Equity for Latino CommunitiesLet’s use #SaludTues on October 20, 2020 to tweet about how to take a systemic approach to address decades of unjust transportation planning practices that have segregated and isolated Latino and low-income communities.
