#13 Right of Way w/ Angie Schmitt

Episode 13 of Amazing Places! This week my guest is Angie Schmitt, Author of Right of Way: Race, Class and the Silent Epidemic of Pedestrian Deaths in America. Angie encourages us to reframe the problem of pedestrian deaths and serious injury by acknowledging the role of racism and classism in the public response to these deaths, and energizing advocacy around road safety.
