Community Engagement

Let’s shape the future of transport equity research together.

Mobilizing Justice has two ongoing opportunities for community leaders, advocates, service providers, and organizers to shape our research and engagement.

Community and Equity Advisory Table

We are recruiting individual community leaders, advocates, organizers, and front-line service providers to serve on a paid community advisory panel. As a member of the table, you will provide guidance for our research and community engagement, while advising on the needs and experiences of impacted communities. It is particularly important that the panel provides insights about diverse lived experiences, especially those that are underrepresented in the existing project team. For this reason, we are especially seeking individuals working with and belonging to equity deserving communities and sovereignty deserving communities.

Community of Practice Workshops

In partnership with The Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT), Mobilizing Justice is leading a series of workshops that will connect MJ researchers with Canadian transportation advocates who are working on community initiatives to support transport equity and increase modal choice, especially for those experiencing transport poverty.

We are recruiting leaders from community organizations to participate in facilitated sessions to share and gain new knowledge about current on-the-ground priorities, gaps, strategies, and community initiatives taking place to address transportation equity. Diversity of experience will be one of the criteria considered in choosing participants, as will ensuring representation from community organizations with a focus on different transportation modes (e.g. walk, bike, transit, rideshare, micromobility, paratransit, etc.)

For any community organization who is asked to prepare and present information during the workshop, financial compensation will be provided.
