About: Mobilizing Justice is pleased to announce the release of its new report: A Review on the Implications of COVID-19 for Delivering Equitable Transportation, (forthcoming May 11 at https://mobilizingjustice.ca/rapports/, brief at https://mobilizingjustice.ca/policy-briefs/). Instead of summarizing the report in a talk, we’ve gathered four of the researchers whose work we’ve cited to take a deep dive into transportation equity coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic:

Jaimy Fischer is an Indigenous (Michif/Metis) Ph.D. Candidate in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University.

Dr. Jacob Alhassan is an academic co-lead for the University of Saskatchewan’s global health program and a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry.

Dr. Ignacio Tiznado-Aitken is a Postdoctoral Fellow and Research Coordinator of the Suburban Mobilities Cluster at the University of Toronto Scarborough.

Dr. Ravensbergen is a postdoctoral fellow at the Transport Studies Unit at the University of Oxford.

Moderated by Dr. Matt Palm, Research Coordinator of Mobilizing Justice, the event will include brief presentations by each panelist from their research on learnings from the COVID-19 pandemic for delivering equitable transportation systems, followed by a Q and A.
