Resources on Equity and Inclusion—Taking Your Biking & Walking to a larger community

Special note about this post: Thanks to Jessica Roberts (of Alta Planning and Design) for compiling and sharing these great resources on equity and being more inclusive in your work. I know many of our clients are tackling these discussions and I thought many of our clients might benefit from these great resources.
