Summary:
What are the best methods in advocating for better transportation in your city? What do you say at a planning meeting? Who do you even direct your concerns to? What changes can you even affect? Christof Spieler, author of Trains, Buses, People: An Opinionated Atlas of US Transit, has been in your shoes. Christof, PE, LEED AP, is now the Vice President and Director of Planning at Huitt-Zollars and a Senior Lecturer at Rice University. Earlier in his life, he was doing citizen advocacy to change his local metro system in Houston. Christof has brought together a panel of local transit advocacy leaders that are doing effective, on the ground work in their neighborhoods. They are using data and best practices to measure their outputs and they're looking to share the secrets of their successes with you. This webinar isn't just for beginners; it's for anyone who wants to know the best ways they can take their transit advocacy to the next level. Panelists include: Fred Neal Jr., Commissioner of the Regional Transit Authority of New Orleans and Sr. Planner at Villavaso & Associates, LLC; Laura Wiens, Director of Pittsburghers for Public Transit; Christof Spieler, PE, LEED AP, Vice President & Director of Planning at Huitt-Zollars + Senior Lecturer at Rice University.
