Vision Zero and Campaign Zero are two platforms describing a path to safer streets. If you’ll remember, we were lucky to have Tamika Butler and Keith Benjamin in Episode 5 to talk about the importance of a racial justice lens in Vision Zero work. In this episode, we will build on the ‘why’ racial equity should be central to this policy (or any policy) discussed earlier, and focus today on the ‘how’, like, what are the critical next steps to make racial equity central.
