Charles was recently featured in the recent Washington Post article, “New Yorkers are biking for Black lives — and to end disparities in cycling” on racial disparities exhibited in bicycling, how this connects to over-policing and community disinvestment, and why transportation equity is important for the Black Lives Matter movement. The article can be found here.

“We are disproportionately more likely to be hit and killed by a car. We don’t have access to quality bicycle infrastructure,” said Charles T. Brown, a senior researcher at the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers.
