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 are interested in learning more or would like to partner with us on some of these initiatives, please feel free to reach out to Multnomah County-REACH's Program Manager, Charlene McGee, MPH at firstname.lastname@example.org
