Racism in Transportation Policy

Breaking the Urban Bubble: Race & Transportation Policy in Pierce County and Tacoma

Friday, March 26, 2021
Noon – 1 p.m. (online)

How do infrastructure ideas become reality? How do problems like faulty sidewalks and inadequate bus stops get fixed? Policy in Tacoma is a web of stakeholders and decision makers, often spanning into Pierce County. Follow along as we track issues from concept to implementation and learn how to have concerns addressed.

Panelists:

  • Andrew Austin, Government and Community Relations Manager, Sound Transit
  • Deputy Mayor Keith Blocker, City of Tacoma
  • Laura Svancarek, CTR & Advocacy Coordinator, Downtown On the Go
  • Councilmember Derek Young, Pierce County
  • Tanisha Jumper, City of Tacoma (moderator)

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