Interagency Equity Advisory Committee Helps All California Communities Benefit from Transportation Projects


District: HQ

SACRAMENTO – Convened for the first time in October 2022, the Interagency Advisory Committee (EAC) is a partnership among the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA), the California Transportation Commission (CTC), and Caltrans to help these agencies achieve meaningful outcomes in transportation equity, environmental justice, and equitable economic opportunities. The EAC provides guidance to support diverse and historically marginalized voices and communities, especially in transportation planning and programming. 

Nailah Pope-Harden, Caltrans Deputy Director, Equity & Tribal Affairs, and Peggy Martinez, a sight-impaired EAC committee member and Principle of Creative Inclusion, an organization that works to improve transportation accessibility for people with sight loss, talk in the video below about their work and why it matters:
