Jane’s Walk: Accessibility is Beautiful Stroll with RAMP and PVD Streets

How can Providence better support the mobility of all residents, regardless of ability? The built environment of Providence is rife with hazards and barriers for people walking, rolling, and using accessible parking spots. Join Liza Burkin of the Providence Streets Coalition and Tina Pedersen of RAMP to learn how to use the Parking Mobility app — a new digital tool in the fight for accessibility and inclusion. Burkin and Pedersen will lead a walk/roll around downtown Providence to map and record accessibility violations to use as a foundation for ongoing advocacy. Jane’s Walk is a global festival of walking conversations inspired by urban activist Jane Jacobs. These interactive walks are led by local residents and community activists who share stories and ask questions that get people thinking, talking, and connecting with each other. Jane’s Walks are free, and anyone can participate. Wear comfortable shoes, meet your walk leader in the designated meeting spot, and get ready for a lively discussion.
