The Idaho Walk Bike Alliance is hosting a virtual Transportation Conference on October 28-29 to educate transportation agencies, city staff, biking/walking advocates, elected officials, and residents on transportation issues in Idaho.

Delivering the keynote is Angie Schmitt, whose recent book "Right of Way: Race, Class, and the Silent Epidemic of Pedestrian Deaths in America" shares statistics on how many people are killed by a car, and how those deaths often fall along racial and class divides. 
 
Schmitt joins Idaho Matters ahead of her keynote address Wednesday.
