Article Link: Local Stakeholders Convene for Complete Streets
A a roundtable hosted by U.S. Representative Steve Cohen (TN-9) in Memphis, TN last week about creating safer streets was almost prescient.

Cohen is leading on this issue and proposing legislative solutions like the Complete Streets Act of 2019.
