With more than 130 participants from across the country, the Untokening included candid discussions about street safety, displacement/gentrification, community engagement and culture, which will be collectively edited and distilled into position statements to be shared in early 2017. Conversations also included identifying the "elephants in the room" in mainstream mobility advocacy settings. Stay tuned for more outputs in coming months!
The Untokening included multiple events, including a full-day convening, a discussion on "Race, Place & Justice" and a social ride with Civil Bikes. Photos below by Argenis Apolinario.
