Dr. Adonia E. Lugo has been a scholar-activist in/of sustainable transportation movements since 2008. Sharing findings from a recent white paper, she will talk about the development of the mobility justice movement through environmental justice, transportation justice, and the project of bike equity.

Cultural anthropologist Adonia E. Lugo, PhD, teaches in the Urban Sustainability MA program at Antioch University Los Angeles. Dr. Lugo began investigating the cultural shift needed to support sustainable transportation during her doctoral work in Los Angeles, where she co-founded CicLAvia and the organization today known as People for Mobility Justice. Through The Untokening collective, she is a national leader in the emerging mobility justice movement that works to bring the complex mobility experiences of people of color and other marginalized groups into urban planning and decisionmaking. Her book, Bicycle / Race: Transportation, Culture, & Resistance, was published by Microcosm in 2018.
