About this event

Every Thursday in November, TCAT is convening a series of Community of Practice workshops (virtual via Zoom) to connect with community-led transportation organizations and advocates from across the country who are working on initiatives to support transport equity and increase modal choice, especially for communities or populations that lack access to affordable, safe, and convenient mobility options. These workshops will explore knowledge and strategies to assist organizations and advocates in increasing their effectiveness in meeting their goals to reduce transport poverty and increase modal choice.

Each workshop will include a short presentation, guided discussion, breakout session, and informal opportunity for networking. All participants are welcome to join for any number of the four workshops, depending on their interest and availability.
