Transportation and civil rights
Forum sponsored by Bike Cleveland and the Northeast Ohio Sustainable Communities Consortium in partnership with the Levin College Forum Program.
The discussion will outline ways in which our transportation policies reinforce segregation and exacerbate inequality in Ohio. Speakers will explain how minority groups, the elderly and people with disabilities bear a disproportionate burden for transportation decision making that favors driving over other modes of transportation.
The keynote speaker for the discussion will be Samuel Gresham Jr., former head of the Columbus Urban League and the Ohio Commission on African American Males. Mr. Gresham Jr. is current chair of Common Cause Ohio.
This forum is free and open to the public.
