Street Justice is hosting a panel discussion — Non-Car Transportation in the DC’s Suburbs; Challenges and Ideas — on Wednesday, January 27th from Noon to 2 PM ET.
Participants include local elected officials, subject matter experts, and advocates. Street Justice founder and reporter Gordon Chaffin will moderate two sessions.
The goal is to inform and equip viewers: identifying projects, policies, and systems where citizen participation can push for more transportation options, more environmental sustainability, and more livable communities where travel is safe and healthy.

Street Justice is a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization spotlighting the policies and people that govern and change public spaces. We include, inform, and equip stakeholders with the least power to improve their community. You know that phrase “Nothing about us, without us?” As a news organization, we are storytellers, but also a tools-provider to the “us” who may already be advocates and the many more who don't know yet how to change things but want things to change.
