The National Survey working group of the Mobilizing Justice Partnership convened a workshop of 66 stakeholders to discuss the major themes of a planned national survey addressing transportation related social exclusion and mobility justice. At the workshop, which took place over zoom on November 5, 2021, participants rotated between five breakout rooms on different themes to quietly brainstorm and then discuss answers to questions on what the national survey should ask about.
Participants brainstormed 938 responses in Mentimeter, and raised another 140 points in breakout discussions. Workshop organizers coded Mentimeter comments into key topics. The distribution of these topics across all breakouts is presented in Figure 1 below.
The most commonly raised issues pertained to safety (16% of comments), followed by access to destinations (15%), public transit (13%), and access to or wellbeing outcomes related to social, cultural and religious activities (13%).

Participants were also prompted to discuss how they would use survey data on the major workshop themes. MJ partners are primarily interested in the survey as a tool to deepen their own understanding of transportation inequities and identify gaps in their own thinking (27.7% percent of responses).
