About the Author
Veronica O. Davis, PE, is the Director of Transportation & Drainage Operations, Houston Public Works. Veronica has nearly 20 years of experience in engineering and transportation planning. She co-founded Black Women Bike and was recognized as a Champion of Change by the White House in 2012 for her professional accomplishments and advocacy. Veronica serves on the committees for Transportation Research Board, the board for America Walks, as well as technical advisory boards at the University of Maryland and Cornell University.
"In the US, our transportation system is at the root of some of our biggest inequities. Ever wonder why some neighborhoods get all the pollution, have the most dangerous, high-speed streets, and the longest travel times to job centers and daily needs? Veronica O. Davis breaks it down for you and shares her transportation project battle scars. Read this book if you're a current or aspiring practitioner who works in any field that touches on public investment decisions, AND if you are a neighborhood advocate - you'll learn where and how to push for change."--Harriet Tregoning, former Planning Director of Washington DC and Director of the New Urban Mobility alliance (NUMO)
"This book joins the chorus of the many Black professionals who have been asking their peers to engage in new ways of thinking, listening, and governing. Most important, it does so by offering concrete advice that planners and allied professionals can take to assess their own privilege, interrogate power, and actively shift those dynamics in their work. I hope those leaders, as well as scholars, students, and anyone interested in justice, read this manifesto for repairing divided communities. I feel changed by reading Veronica's book. I hope you feel the same. Open the book, get started on, or continue, your justice journey, and when you finish, make a commitment to do more than just talk about equity."--tamika l. butler, esq., Principal + Founder of tamika l. butler Consulting
