Join us for the inaugural ULI Healthy Places Book Talk! Our new Book Talks series represents the next chapter of the Building Healthy Places Book + Film Club. Launched in the spring of 2020, BHP Book + Film Club brought people together for meaningful discussions during times of social separation.
The first Book Talk will shine a spotlight on Inclusive Transportation: A Manifesto for Repairing Divided Communities by Veronica Davis. In this groundbreaking work, Davis fearlessly confronts the significant challenges that transportation and land use professionals face today. She delves into the inherent inequities of our transportation systems, which only serve to exacerbate disparities across communities in the U.S. Davis emphasizes the importance of empathy and determination in reshaping a transportation system that, for too long, has favored automobiles and divided communities.
Inclusive Transportation is not just a call to action; it's a practical guide for those eager to champion justice and equity in community development through transportation. Davis advocates for a transformative approach that spotlights the critical need for diverse leadership, updated training, improved communication, and enhanced data collection.
Join us for a powerful conversation with Veronica Davis, facilitated by Shonda Wang, that explores the path to a more equitable and just future in transportation and development.
