New report: Multnomah County REACH Transportation Crash and Safety Report: At the Intersection of Transportation, Health, Race and Justice
Scope of Work
REACH's physical activity strategy focuses on how the built environment promotes physical activity, for example: do communities of color have sidewalks or bike lanes. We do this by collaborating with non-profit organizations and other local government entities to engage community with urban and transportation planning and policies.
Our hope is to work with our transportation partners so that way they can better impact neighborhoods who have experienced displacement. We want to ensure that the African-American and African immigrant/refugee experience is uplifted through this work and that the Black community is able to have an influence on any future models for urban design and transportation policy.
If you would like to be involved with this type of work, feel free to contact our Physical Activity Program Specialist, Andrew Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
