Local riders should check out an interesting panel discussion, hosted by Street Justice, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization, on Non-Car Transportation in the DC Suburbs on Wednesday, January 27, from Noon to 2:00 pm.

Street Justice founder and reporter Gordon Chaffin will moderate two sessions, the first with local officials, including Braddock District Supervisor James Walkinshaw, and the second with transportation officials, subject matter experts, and advocates.

The discussion will be centered around the ongoing need to reduce vehicle miles driven using alternative modes of transportation, including biking, to mitigate the adverse impact on our climate from greenhouse gas emissions even as more electric vehicles come into use. The meeting’s goal is to inform and equip viewers to identify projects, policies, and systems where citizen participation can push for more transportation options, more environmental sustainability, and more livable communities where travel is safe and healthy.
