2023 BUS BIKE WALK FOR TRANSPORTATION EQUITY SERIES
Throughout 2023 we’re exploring transportation equity issues in Duluth, along with opportunities to enact structural changes that shift the conditions of exclusion and oppression to those of inclusivity and an ability to thrive. Join us as we broaden our Bus Bike Walk and Winter Bike events to connect, educate, and advocate around city- and neighborhood-wide design that prioritizes people, community power, and possibility.
TRANSPORTATION EQUITY DOC & TALK SERIES
Follow the history of transportation in this country, from buses and bikes to super highways and self-driving cars, as we examine the barriers that persist in our transportation networks. The Transportation Equity Doc & Talk Series includes monthly (generally the fourth Thursday of the month) screenings of transportation documentaries followed by community conversations with speakers from the Twin Ports advancing transportation equity through their work.
