Last Friday, we teamed up with Councilmember O’Brien and SDOT to host a special lunch and learn discussion with national transportation equity leader Tamika Butler. Tamika is Toole Design’s Director of Planning for California and the Director of Equity and Inclusion, as well as the previous Executive Director of the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust. TCC’s Education and Engagement Director Regina Dove facilitated the conversation with Tamika.
Tamika spoke about mobility justice, best practices for integrating equity into transportation policy, and the importance of having an intersectional framework. Listen and learn — this is a must watch!
