Location: Zoom link will be sent to registrants in advance of event. 

Charles Brown on Race and Transportation

The third and final event in our 3-part series on race & smart growth, DVSGA is hosting Charles Brown of the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers to discuss race and transportation in our region and how planners and other smart growth professionals can respond to the imperative of centering racial equity in our transportation ecosystem.

Please register here by Wednesday, May 12, 2021. There is a $10 registration fee. Free for students.

DVSGA’s three-part speaker series on Race and Smart Growth is long overdue as our organization’s work on sustainable land use and transportation policies has never explicitly considered the role of race in regional growth patterns. From our region’s history of redlining to today’s exclusionary suburban zoning, race has been and continues to be a significant force in regional growth patterns.
