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.
If you are looking for books, the University of Minnesota Press is making its Reading for Racial Justice collection available for free online until Aug 31. 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.
MnDOT Library has nearly 80 titles in its Diversity/Inclusion collection. Click here to browse these books and DVDs.
