Latino Walk for Health

THE STORY:

Because urban design is intricately related to our health; Buford Highway, home to many Latino families, is the most dangerous road for pedestrians in Georgia

The corridor has a very high concentration of Hispanic and Asian immigrants that are predominantly low-income and can not afford cars or lack driving licenses to get to their work places, doctor appointments or schools. According to a PBS report, 25 percent of pedestrian accidents on Buford Highway involve pedestrians who are hit while trying to catch the bus.

There are areas in Buford Highway in which there are 6/7 lanes of speeding traffic and crosswalks are a mile apart. Stopding to a PBS report, 25 percent of pedestrian accidents on Buford Highway involve pedestrians who are hit while trying to catch the bus.

HHCGA wants to raise awareness that transportation is a key factor that impacts not only access to health care to people living around the corridor but also their ability to maintain an economically active and healthy lifestyle.

Buford Highway is home to over 1,000 immigrant-owned businesses.
