Resources for Social Equity and Racial Justice

by Marilee Tuite

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) has created a new “Snap Search” on Social Equity, available at http://www.trb.org/InformationServices/Snap.aspx. Snap Searches bring together recent TRB publications and activities on a given subject. TRB has also added Social Equity as a new hot topic on the TRID homepage at https://trid.trb.org/, where clicking on the phrase will lead to hundreds of reports, journal articles, and other transportation-related publications that are indexed with relevant terms.

Voices of Rondo is one of the 27 titles in this collection. Visit https://manifold.umn.edu/projects/project-collection/racial-justice to see the full list. Reading one of these books is as simple as clicking on the title and then selecting “Read Online.” There is no account set-up required.
