Dr. Regan Patterson joined the Agents of Change in Environmental Justice podcast to discuss her research and advocacy for transportation reparations and justice.

"You're starting to see this explicit link being made between state-sanctioned violence and transportation equity."

Patterson, a Transportation Equity Research Fellow at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Switzer Fellow and current Agents of Change fellow, also talks about her love of math from an early age, institutional barriers for young Black girls going into STEM careers, and how she came to incorporate environmental justice into her engineering research.

The Agents of Change in Environmental Justice podcast is a biweekly podcast featuring the stories and big ideas from past and present Agents of Change fellows, as well as others in the field. You can see all of the past episodes here.
