Thursday, April 17:  Equity Efforts of Safe Routes to School

Presented by Carolina Iraheta Gonzalez, PBOT Safe Routes to School

Is your organization trying to incorporate an equity lens into its work?  Do your decision-makers struggle with how to include this priority?  

The City of Portland’s Safe Routes to School program operated for over 6 years without formal equity policies.  Some community members raised concerns about how SRTS allocated services and prioritized schools.

In 2011, Safe Routes 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. The policy 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 Safe Routes prioritization matrix, a tool used to assess and prioritize schools in Portland.   

Bring your questions, your Lunch -  and Learn!
