Mobility Justice Power Hour

THIS EVENT HAS PASSED June 10, 2020 | 3:30 – 4:30pm PST We’re blocking off an hour off our calendars to have individual reading time to educate ourselves and share mobility justice/anti-racist resources and build power together. Stay on after 4:30pm to discuss what we’ve read.

Did you miss the event?

No worries. All of the resources are available below. Continue to read, watch, listen and learn about mobility and racial justice. The work doesn’t end here.


What did you think of the event? Give us your feedback below as we work on future events.


Bold resources are ones TCC will be reviewing during the hour and you can follow along with if you choose to. We will mostly be reading – if you would prefer to watch something, we highly recommend Planning While Black, A Powerful Call for Racial Equity which would take up the entire time, but is an amazing watch.
