National Active Transportation Equity Work Group

The National Active Transportation Equity Work Group is composed of a broad array of experts and practitioners from around the country who engage in a national conversation and support outreach that elevates equity in active transportation to a state and national issue.

Bringing together both active transportation and social justice experts, the work group serves as a rare space to critically discuss and take action at the intersection of active transportation and equity. The group aims to centrally locate equity in active transportation and prioritize active transportation in the social justice movement to expand the framing and understanding, policy goals, and allies of walking, biking, and rolling.
