Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most in-person events have been canceled. Here is a list of (mostly) online/webinar events this week.

  • Wednesday Pedestrian Deaths in America. Last year, 6,590 people were hit and killed while walking in the United States–the highest number in 30 years. In her new book, Right of Way, former Streetsblog USA editor Angie Schmitt shows us that these deaths are not unavoidable “accidents.” Join SPUR for a discussion.
