We can create livable places by designing livable streets.

In many areas of Columbia, the streets weren’t designed for the people who live closest to them.
Instead, the streets prioritize whisking cars across town and through neighborhoods as quickly as possible.

By building more livable streets and prioritizing improvements to areas of historic underinvestment,
livable places become accessible and affordable to everyone -
not just to people in positions of privilege.

“I think that the lower income neighborhoods are really being looked over, not being cared for, they are not even being thought about.
It’s just like a forgotten thought.”

This equity-focused campaign for livable streets will fundamentally transform the transportation system in Columbia - creating streets that eliminate underlying causes of health inequities, and enable all people to thrive.
