Date: 15th June 2023
Organizer: TH Wildau as part of the Bicycle professorships by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport
The event opens with a keynote by Olatunji Oboi Reed.
Olatunji Oboi Reed is the founding President & CEO of the Equiticity Racial Equity Movement. Equiticity is operationalizing racial equity by harnessing collective power through research, advocacy, programs, Community Mobility Rituals, and social enterprises to improve the lives of marginalized communities.
Oboi will be discussing the vision and mission of Equiticity, and the organization's work to operationalize racial equity, mobility justice and environmental justice. Oboi will also discuss the work needed to reimagine cycling for racially marginalized communities. He will both challenge the status quo in the transportation sector and offer tactical solutions to solve racialized transportation inequities and other compounding inequities across domains. His presentation will push the transportation sector to reimagine itself and its purpose in our society, and recognize the urgent need to shift how the sector operates.
The presentation is followed by a Q&A with Oboi Reed, Denise Kramer and comments from the audience (starting at 27:50).
