Monday, July 26th Joseph 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00PM Pacific The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Angie Schmitt. An author and expert on sustainable transporation, Schmitt has been published in the New York Times, The Atlantic and National Public Radio. She's the founder and principal of 3MPH Planning and Consulting, a firm focused on pedestrian safety. We'll discuss her 2020 publication, Right of Way: Race, Class, and the Silent Epidemic of Pedestrian Deaths in America. The book discusses the startlingly high number of pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. and the reasons why non-white male foot-travelers are disproportionately likely to be killed by a motor vehicle. Like most other elements of White Supremacy, words are crucially important to understanding the history of road development and the laws governing motorists and pedestrians. This includes concepts like "jaywalking" or the pattern of describing a person being hit by a multi-ton vehicle as an "accident." #RoadRacism #DerylDedmon INVEST in The COWS – Invest in The C.O.W.S. -$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 720.716.7300 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S.
