Pedestrian Education Seminars

In partnership with the Portland Bureau of Transportation, the Slavic Community Center was able to create a Pedestrian Education Seminar was created to inform the Slavic community of recent traffic law changes in the region. Language barriers and lack of access to information prohibit many Slavic citizens from receiving adequate access to crucial information about traffic law changes and safety knowledge, creating a higher possibility for traffic hazards within the community. By creating an event with instruction from Sharon White of PBOT through a series of songs in automotive-themed Russian songs and an active walk through SE Portland, members of the Slavic community were able to learn pedestrian safety and participate in an engaging and informative discourse.
