Co-Creating Pedestrian & COVID Safety Practices

Saturday, September 5th

In collaboration with Yolanda Davis-Overstreet, People for Mobility Justice, & Antioch Los Angeles please join us for this 2.5-hour virtual convening will be to take-in the narratives of our participating school communities, New LA Charter Middle School in Mid-City and Cienega Elementary School in West Adams, paired with intentional dialogue and shared insights with community advocates and leaders.

The goal of this event is to build community resilience and align meaningful support in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic and the rising threats of racism upon #BlackLives. Along with celebrating the successes that grassroots advocacy can bring to our community members, emphasizing that pedestrian safety of #BIPOC Lives takes all of us working together to co-create safer and sustainable living environments.

Our community convening will aim to meaningfully create a platform to acknowledge the narratives of the school community (administrators, parents, and if possible students) who have had the direct experiences in their communities, as well as the community advocates who are interested and working directly to address the needs and challenges.

This project is funded by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) and Go Human!
