Streets are how we connect to one another and to opportunity; they connect us to work, school, church, healthcare, civic engagement, parks and natural areas. Streets and cities must be designed for the convenience and safety of people, not for speed and efficiency of one mode of street user at the expense of all the others.

Safety and mobility are rights, and no one’s zipcode should determine health and safety outcomes. Our city and transportation plans must prioritize authentically engaging with historically marginalized groups to uncover and overcome barriers to mobility based on geography, income, race, class and gender. We must also prioritize developing processes to promote inclusion of historically marginalized groups in discussions that affect their health and safety.
