National Safety Council webinar: Back to Basics – Transportation Safety in Traditionally Underserved and Vulnerable Communities
June 27, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am| Free
Rural and tribal communities present their own set of opportunities and challenges in addressing transportation safety and improved mobility. The Road to Zero Coalition cannot achieve its mission of zero transportation deaths without addressing the disproportionate fatalities that occur each year on rural and tribal roads. This webinar will kick off our summer series exploring traditionally underserved and vulnerable communities, including rural and tribal populations, which will aim to engage practitioners and those working in transportation safety who might not be as familiar with issues in these communities. This session will provide an opportunity for attendees to explore the way rural and tribal communities are experiencing many of the same historical and systemic legacies of urban communities, ways to better incorporate these communities into the discussion of transportation equity, and why mobility is a right.
