Transportation Inequities:

Whose Data Counts?

Join national transportation expert, Tamika Butler, in conversation with MIT CoLab Director Dayna Cunningham and Professor Jason Jackson. Tamika will lead us through a conversation focused on the way that white supremacy and structural racism have shaped transportation and built environment throughout the history of the United States. She will touch on the ways that engagement, data, and policy have added to these disparities and challenge us all to think about data differently. The presentation will be followed by a robust & open Q&A.
