This event has passed, but stay tuned for more Kittelson webinars in coming months!


We invite the transportation engineering and planning community to join us on April 22, 2020 to dialogue about an important topic through a 30-minute webinar with Kittelson Associate Planner Amanda Leahy.

The connection between Vision Zero and Black Lives Matter is growing increasingly clear, as is the power of leveraging these movements to achieve transportation safety and equity goals.

Drawing from a vast range of research and practical experience, Amanda will present on the importance of prioritizing investment in historically under-invested areas and developing strategies to combat the higher rates of traffic-related injuries and fatalities experienced by low-income communities and communities of color. She will also discuss solutions for achieving transportation safety and equity.

Amanda will be joined by panelists Andrew Ooms and Matt Braughton, who will offer insights from their experiences helping agencies develop and implement Vision Zero plans and local roadway safety plans (LRSPs).

After a 20-minute presentation, Amanda will leave time for Q&A, so please bring your thoughts and questions.

We invite you to tune in from 12:30-1:00 PM PDT on Wednesday, April 22. Registration is free, but required to get an access link to tune in. Please register for the webinar here.

As a transportation planner and someone who prefers traveling on foot or by bike, Amanda understands the needs of these most vulnerable users. Her areas of expertise include multimodal traffic operations and safety analysis, bicycle and pedestrian planning and design, and complete streets policy and implementation. She has worked on many complex projects from planning through construction that have required objective and transparent technical analysis, multi-agency coordination, and environmental clearance. Amanda is committed to creating a safe and comfortable public realm for people of all ages and abilities.

We hope you can join us on April 22 to hear from Amanda, Andrew, and Matt on this topic!
