“Reconnecting Communities and Dismantling Inequitable Infrastructure”

During industrial and car-centered building booms, neighborhoods across the U.S. were harmed and isolated by transportation infrastructure. Now in the context of a federal focus on equitable community restoration and movements for mode-shift across the world, how can we re-envision our communities to center local needs holistically – for sustainable transportation, affordable housing, improved health outcomes, and more? By expanding the definitions of ‘community’ and ‘infrastructure’ beyond the physical, this panel will explore both lessons learned and future opportunities to reconnect communities by dismantling inequitable infrastructure.
