CANADIAN COMMUNITY INITIATIVES ADDRESSING TRANSPORT POVERTY: UPDATED REPORT AND DATABASE

10 August 2022
by Mobilizing Justice

Mobilizing Justice maintains a catalogue of grassroots community initiatives addressing transportation poverty and inequities. The goal of the catalogue is to document and recognize grassroot activity across the country. In the spring of 2022, The Centre for Active Transportation’s graduate assistant Kara Martin conducted a national scan to update the catalogue (available here), and author a report documenting the findings. Martin and co-authors conclude that most of the existing grassroots efforts are focused on cycling and are based in urban communities. They also note that while many grassroots groups are led by and for equity-deserving communities, most focus on the general public at large. You can catch the highlights of the report in this blog post.
