The Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) is invited traffic safety partners to participate in one of two virtual town hall meetings on April 13 and 14, 2021 to discuss opportunities to contribute to our Highway Safety Plan with a focus on engaging with our underrepresented and underserved communities. Reestablishing or making new connections with community-based organizations will improve the coordination, communication, and involvement needed for law enforcement, public information, and education as well as stakeholder recruitment efforts that will be included in our Highway Safety Plan.
In the long list of public engagement opportunities, GTSC wants to create opportunities to engage with those groups that may be most impacted by serious injuries and fatalities due to crashes. We want to hear from our diverse communities as we move towards a more inclusive Highway Safety Plan. Our shared goals of traffic safety should include those from the public, private, educational, service provider, faith-based, ethnically diverse, gender-neutral, ability challenged, socio-economic, and racially diverse groups as we collaborate and promote inclusivity. Our ultimate goal is to energize our local community leaders on how GTSC and our partners can work to address traffic safety concerns in those underserved communities.
This workshop is the second of the two. Held on April 14th, 2021.
