Aiming for Walkable, Inclusive Communities
Date: May 30, 2018
Time: 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm ET
Walking is a crucial part of living in any urban setting. It facilitates access to the places and things people need to live their lives (employment, services, social networks, transit, etc.). Walking also improves individual and population level health. Walking is the primary source of physical activity for most Americans and is associated with lower rates of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia, and some types of cancer. In many urban areas, however, people must walk in environments that are not supportive. This prevents many people from walking and puts those who do walk in uncomfortable, unpleasant, stressful, and often dangerous situations. This is especially true for low-income and pedestrians of color who, nationally, face higher pedestrian fatality rates.
