      Transit-Oriented Development and Social Equity: An Agenda for Research and
      Action

      Though building more transit-oriented development (TOD) is critical to
      reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the push for TOD raises new equity
      concerns. Due to the difficulty of preserving and building new affordable
      housing, the potential for displacement, air quality issues associated
      with new density, and the complexity of regional planning processes, now
      more than ever must we address these equity issues. Sponsored by
      the University of California Transportation Center and the Center for
      Community Innovation at UC-Berkeley’s Institute for Urban & Regional
      Development, this conference will bring together policymakers, community
      leaders, business leaders, and scholars to discuss how to plan for and
      build equitable TOD. Topics to be discussed include TOD, displacement, and
      environmental justice; obstacles in TOD implementation; and planning for
      TOD from a regional equity perspective. Our conference aims to highlight
      the equity and distributive issues that arise with TOD, with the goal of
      producing an agenda for future research and action.

      Speakers will include:
      - Prof. Robert Cervero, Director, University of California Transportation
      Center
      - Michael Bodaken, President, National Housing Trust
