Friday Forum: Where the Sidewalks End

Racism in Transportation Policy

Where the Sidewalks End: Racist Urban Design and Crime Prevention

Friday, January 22, 2021
Noon – 1 p.m. (online)

What if crime prevention could be built into cities? As cities begin to explore this question, the results have not been favorable for Black and brown residents. Learn about how urban design meant to prevent crime instead reinforces systemic inequalities and racism, and how Tacoma is planning to avoid this.

The event will feature panelists Nick Bayard (Tacoma’s Office of Equity and Human Rights), Lauren Flemister (Community Planning Manager for the City of Seattle), Krystal Monteros (Vice Chair of the Commission on Disabilities) and moderator Tanisha Jumper (City of Tacoma Media and Communications Director).

Friday Forums bring together local leaders, experts, and the community to talk about transportation issues facing Tacoma and our region.

If you can’t attend the live Friday Forum, check out the recording at our media sponsor, Channel 253! And don’t miss the additional podcast on Crossing Division: “What If There Is No Sidewalk — Amenities, Equity & Gentrification”.
