The Traffic Advisory speaker series is part of Overhaul: The 2013-2014 Transportation Series organized by the Boston Society of Architects, the Boston Foundation for Architecture, Boston’s Green Ribbon Commission, and the Barr Foundation.
Overhaul, an expansive series of design exhibitions, lectures, and other programs, offers the region’s most comprehensive look at urban-transportation visioning, with a speaker series focused on opportunities and challenges for Greater Boston. Speakers include regional, national, and international transportation policy makers and visionaries.
Transportation today on October 29 is the kick-off session, led by Robert Puente (Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution), Stephanie Pollack (associate director, Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, Northeastern University), Beverly Scott (general manager, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority; Rail & Transit). These regional and national transportation policy advisors consider Greater Boston’s current state of mobility, focusing on recent advancements, longstanding challenges, and capacity for expansion.

In his recent book, Racing to Justice: Transforming Our Concepts of Self and Other to Build an Inclusive Society, Powell argues that the United States has not achieved a post-racial society, but through stronger collaboration that transcends race, Boston and other American cities will move closer to developing an inclusive urban society.
