Low-income people and people of color are more likely to walk or bike to their destinations in comparison to those in more affluent communities. However, many of the
areas where these demographics live do not have the proper infrastructure like sidewalks, crosswalks, or adequate lighting to make these options safe for travel.
This blog, posted by the NAACP introduces a conversation to #MoveEquity, in an effort to improve safety conditions, especially for minority children who walk to school. The goal is to get the conversation going in order to better accommodate al citizens, while helping with the health and fairness associated with analyzing and implementing public and self transport routes.
