Infographic: Safe Streets & Latino Kids


Share On Social!

The majority of Latino kids who live in inner city neighborhoods lack access to active spaces and safe streets where they can be physically active. Streets in Latino neighborhoods are often plagued with speeding cars and lack of sidewalks.

Research shows that when communities adopt a “complete streets” policy and organize events such asOptimized-ActiveSpaces-SafeStreets “Open Street” more Latino kids and their families become physically active, according to our new infographic on safe streets which is part of the new Salud America! Active Spaces and Latino Kids research package on the latest science and policy recommendations on the Latino physical activity environment.
