Pedestrians Are People Too: The Criminalization of Walking

Wed, Sep 12, 2018 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT

Walking is the original form of transportation and yet too often it is forgotten in planning, promotion, and protection. Equally concerning is the increased messaging around victim-blaming, distracted walking legislation, and other moves to criminalize walking. This webinar will explore the criminalization in walking and the responsibility we all have in supporting a culture of safe and accessible walkability. This webinar assumes a basic knowledge of issues related to walking and walkable communities. Attendees of this webinar will: *Learn how policies such as jaywalking are used to discourage walking and target individuals of color *Hear how the increase of victim-blaming and distracted walking narratives plays a role in protecting the auto-centric culture of the US  *Be inspired to take action against messaging, policies, and programs that criminalize walking and public spaces
