Centering Black and Brown Experience: Walking While Black & Celebrating Ruby Bridges

October 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

ODOT SRTS aims to create inclusive programs for all students and families, where they can feel safe and secure walking and rolling to school. Unfortunately, for many in Oregon, walking and rolling can feel unsafe. Join us on October 19th at noon, with speaker Ashton Simpson (Oregon Walks) who will talk about the issues Black and Brown community members face, and give insight on how to make SRTS programs better for all. The SRTS Technical Assistance team will also discuss Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day, which celebrates 6 year old Ruby’s heroism and bravery, and ways to promote safe walking and biking while it gets darker, colder and rainier in Oregon.
