Public Forum: Transportation as Civil Rights Issue
Sponsored by Bike Cleveland and the Northeast Ohio Sustainable Communities Consortium you are invited to participate in a discussion titled “Transportation as a Civil Rights Issue.” 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.
The discussion will take place at CSU’s Levin College of Urban Affairs (1717 Euclid Ave.) at 4pm on June 13th.
