Update: The City of Charlottesville is sponsoring a virtual Safe-Streets Book Club. We will be reading Angie’s new book, Right of Way: Race, Class, and the Silent Epidemic of Pedestrian Deaths in America.
Sign up here to take part. A limited number of free copies of the book are available.
Join us Monday, November 30, 5-6 p.m. for a virtual presentation by author and active-transportation advocate Angie Schmitt! Angie will discuss the ways that inequality and other social trends combine to make walking along America’s roads and streets needlessly dangerous.
Those who want to dig into the issue further can check out her new book: Right of Way: Race, Class, and the Silent Epidemic of Pedestrian Deaths in America *Her publisher is offering a 20% discount for attendees on purchases of the book. Use code SCHMITT at the Island Press website.
This virtual event is free and open to all but registration is required.
This event is being organized by The Piedmont Environmental Council and co-sponsored by the Coalition for Smarter Growth. This talk is a part of PEC’s effort to pull together an alliance of organizations that share a vision of a better-connected community for walking, biking and other forms of active transportation in Charlottesville and Albemarle County, Virginia. People from all over are encouraged to attend!
