Safe Routes to School and neighbors, immigrants, and refugees.
Portland Safe Routes to School program is working to make walking and biking around our neighborhoods fun, easy, safe and healthy for students and families. But is it always so simple as kids riding bikes?
The recent ENRICH (Engaging Neighbors, Refugees, Immigrants, in Community Health) study by Catholic Charities' El Programa Hispano and IRCO (Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization) looks at perceptions of walking and biking within communities of color. Join us for a conversation with Portland's Safe Routes to School program, IRCO, and El Programa Hispano to explore what walking and biking mean for our neighbors, particularly immigrants and refugees.
