Decisions made decades ago can significantly impact the everyday lives of people today. Join Dr. Tomas A. Madrigal, Equity and Social Justice Consultant and Rad Cunningham, Manager of the Climate Change and Health section at Washington State Department of Health. They will take a look back at policy decisions around transportation and housing in minority communities and how they continue to impact Washingtonians’ health. They will also look into the future to explore if the health impacts on minority communities can be rectified through more thoughtful infrastructure planning around autonomous vehicles.

“Washington Stay Home Society” programs are generously supported by Columbia Bank.
