Equity Efforts of Safe Routes to School, presented by Carolina Iraheta Gonzalez, PBOT Safe Routes to School
Is your organization or Bureau trying to incorporate an equity lens into its work? Do your decision-makers struggle with how to include this priority?
In 2011, PBOT’s Safe Routes program worked with community stakeholders to create policy around equitable service delivery. Now this policy guides the program in selecting schools to receive infrastructure projects, education services and encouragement initiatives and will guide how Safe Routes allocates funds in the future, including $5 million from Portland Public Schools over the next 7 years.
This workshop will share how one City program created equitable policies which prioritize schools serving mainly low-income and students of color populations. Learn about the SR2S prioritization matrix, a tool used to assess and prioritize schools inPortland.
