Right of Way: Race, Class, and the Silent Epidemic of Pedestrian Deaths
Angie Schmitt, the long-time national editor at Streetsblog, is one of the country's best known writers and experts on sustainable transportation. Her commentary has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, and National Public Radio.

The tragedy of traffic violence has barely registered with the media and wider culture. Disproportionately the victims are immigrants, the poor, and people of color. They have largely been blamed and forgotten. Schmitt's book, Right of Way, unveils a crisis rooted in both inequality and the undeterred reign of the automobile in our cities. It challenges us to imagine and demand safer and more equitable cities, where no one is expendable.

Moderated by David King, assistant professor in ASU's School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning. This event is in partnership with Island Press, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that shines a spotlight on crucial issues and focuses attention on sustainable solutions.
