Plot Twist - Rewriting the Narrative on Data Collection in Public Health

August 6, 12 pm PDT / 3pm EDT

Planner Jessica Nguyen will be presenting in a session for the Walk/Bike/Places 2020 Conference about data in planning and public health hosted by Project for Public Spaces.

Presentations in this session will tell the story of how three different regions (California, Knoxville, Quebec City) were challenged to improve collection and analysis of data, and the struggles and successes they experienced along the way.

Jessica will talk about how measuring transportation impacts with different metrics and analysis methods – such as Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT), multimodal LOS, or level of traffic stress – shifts the focus from dependency on single-occupancy vehicles to other modes of transportation.

Housing Stability & Coronavirus Response

July 29, 11 am PDT / 1 pm EDT

Senior attorney Greg Miao will be speaking at the second webinar of a two-part series hosted by What Works Cities and ChangeLab Solutions.

Housing is vital for our health and well-being. During the COVID-19 pandemic, access to safe, stable, and affordable housing is essential, to allow individuals and families to practice social distancing and safely shelter in place during stay-at-home orders.

Renters are at the highest risk for housing instability and displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic. People in communities of color — who are already disproportionately affected by the virus — will bear the greatest burden in this looming housing crisis.
