Who feels safe in Tacoma streets? Street safety initiatives often rely on police enforcement with racially asymmetrical impacts. Join us for an exploration into what contributes to real and perceived safety in public spaces, focusing on how race informs safety, why, and a few ideas of steps to address racism in public space safety. The free virtual event, sponsored by Parametrix, will be held on Feb. 26, 2021 from noon – 1:00 p.m. and will feature panelists Liz Kaster (Senior Planner & Active Transportation Coordinator, City of Tacoma), Isha Hussein (Youth Organizer, The People’s Assembly), Naomi Smith (Attorney at Law, Lawyers Against Systemic Racism, Advocacy Committee Co-chair) and panel moderator, Tanisha Jumper (Media and Communications Director, City of Tacoma).
