  2. The Importance of Transit Equity

    November 9, 2023 - 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM ET

    Car-dependent metropolitan areas divide and isolate people from one another. Strong public transit systems and walkable and bikeable city infrastructure helps to make communities more accessible and fosters connection. This virtual discussion will focus on the impact of public transit and pedestrian-friendly infrastructure on equity, and how inaccessible, car-centric cities disproportionately marginalize and endanger BIPOC and other vulnerable communities. We will discuss how cities have been shaped by historic and ongoing discriminatory housing and transportation policies, and how transit advocates are helping to transform urban planning in cities like Ann Arbor and Detroit. Panelists include Dr. Molly Kleinman, former Chair of the Ann Arbor Transportation Commission and Managing Director of the Ford School’s of Science, Technology, and Public Policy program; Donnell Wyche, Ann Arbor transit advocate, Pastor of Vineyard Church, and an Ann Arbor Planning Commissioner; Idrees Mutahr, former activist of Motor City Freedom Riders and Project Manager with the City of Detroit’s Joe Louis Greenway, among others TBA.

  10. Community Conversation: Social Work in Our Personal Lives

    November 14, 2023 - 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM ET

    When trained and dedicated to see patterns through a social work lens, it is hard to “turn off” this perspective. However, taking on the role of social worker all the time, especially within our personal relationships, can lead to unhealthy dynamics and burnout. To what extent should we bring our social work education and skills to our personal lives and relationships, while considering ethical dynamics and healthy boundaries? How can we use the benefits of our education to enrich our personal lives in healthy ways?
