Join PI’s Rachel Bennett for a Webinar: Tackling Gentrification and Displacement in Creating Vibrant Communities on November 15, 2017 at 2pm Eastern, 11am Pacific.
Jobs, affordable housing and transportation are three pillars of providing opportunities and supporting human potential and well-being. As advocates for active transportation and connected mobility options, these pillars are essential to our work and it is important that we continue to explore ways they come together in developing healthy, active, and engaged communities. By doing so, we create opportunities for new jobs, economic vitality, and community cohesion. This webinar assumes a basic knowledge of issues related to walking and walkability.
The webinar will be hosted by America Walks and will also feature speakers from Multicultural Communities for Mobility (a community-based organization that advocates for safe, alternative transportation access in underserved communities of color within greater Los Angeles), Project for Public Spaces, and Brookings Institution. During the talk, Rachel will share PI’s healthy development without displacement work.
Attendees of this webinar will:
- Expand their knowledge of work being done promoting different forms of community development
- Learn from those working to address some of these challenges and their views as to how their work intersects with walkability
- Strategies for public, private, civic, and neighborhood leaders to work together to support these new patterns of growth in their communities
