On the tenth anniversary of The Street Trust’s Oregon Active Transportation Summit, we are giving a platform to the bright minds that are taking on the intersecting issues of climate change and transportation justice.
This year’s summit will consist of diverse virtual workshops, panels, round table discussions, mobile workshops, professional training, and a keynote address from the National Association of City Transportation Officials’ Ronnie Matthew Harris with a special introduction from Portland’s Transportation Commissioner, Jo Ann Hardesty.
During the summit, we will examine how our transportation investments, programs and plans can lead to clean, equitable solutions for the future of our planet and community. We will highlight the kinds of transportation decisions being made in the face of the climate crisis along with the change-makers leading on them.
Low-income people and People of Color are impacted first and worst by climate change but served the least by our transportation system. How can we center transportation access, options, and outcomes for our most disenfranchised populations? Together we can move beyond today’s challenges toward actionable solutions.
