Kamien: Barriers to walking and biking

“Since I go to school in the Fifth Ward, there are a lot of obstacles. It’s a not-so-safe area with cracked sidewalks and abandoned houses. Walking down the street isn’t enjoyable at all because there’s no scenery. I don’t feel safe walking to school. The conference is going to be a big help, I hope. I want to learn how I can try and make a difference. I also want to take away from this trip many good ideas on what can make walking or biking safer.”
