Mobility is an essential component to the vibrant, equitable, and sustainable cities of our future. To build this future, we need to do more than invest in technology. We need to invest in the people who will make the hard decisions around transportation, land use, housing, economic development, and other aspects of urban life.
Josh Cohen, National Policy Director at TransLoc, started that conversation by building relationships with and sharing ideas from today’s leaders who are imagining and implementing change. He will profile leaders who are doing the heavy lifting to make our communities better and inspire new ones to supplement them. Together, we’ll build The Movement with the goal of sparking tangible change in our communities.
