Join us on Wednesday, August 18 at 12pm for a #TwitterChat with incredible partners, safety champions, community ambassadors and local community engagement leaders across the region to share successful engagement strategies that have built street-level community resiliency and increased the safety of people most harmed by traffic injuries and fatalities. KOA is providing assistance to SCAG as the prime consultant for administering this year’s Community Streets Mini-Grant program. As a part of that project, the project team is hosting the tweet chat to discuss community engagement strategies. Mark your calendars and head to our Twitter page!
