How do you change a system that was never designed to be equitable? Join us on Monday, October 16 at 12:00 pm EDT with Veronica O. Davis for a virtual talk on her book, Inclusive Transportation: A Manifesto for Repairing Divided Communities.
In Inclusive Transportation: A Manifesto for Repairing Divided Communities, transportation expert Veronica O. Davis shines a light on the inequitable and often destructive practice of transportation planning and engineering. She calls for new thinking and more diverse leadership to create transportation networks that connect people to jobs, education, opportunities, and to each other.
Veronica O. Davis, PE, is a civil engineer, planner, transportation nerd, public speaker, community activist, guest lecturer, poet, blogger, lover of art, yogi, foodie, world explorer, wife, and mom. When she was twenty-two years old, she wrote a life strategic plan declaring that she would be a world-renowned transportation expert and an author with an eclectic collection of books across multiple genres. The clarity of that vision allows her to achieve her goals.
Presented as part of our ongoing exhibition, Getting Around Town: Four Centuries of Mapping Boston in Transit.
