Crafting Inclusive and Equitable Safe Routes to School Programs (2:15pm-3:45pm)

Thursday, September 14

Equity in Safe Routes to School (SRTS) means including a diversity of participants and ensuring that everyone has access to and can take advantage of the resources provided through the program. Successful SRTS programs engage the local communities by working with community-based organizations and celebrate the families’ diversity as an asset to promoting active transportation.

This session will discuss specific strategies for creating inclusive programs in San Mateo County, the City of Tacoma, and Minneapolis Public Schools.
