Women of the World completed a busy month of events with this Friday’s Navigating the Public Transportation System, a workshop created in President Samira Harnish’s Westside Leadership Institute class project. The goal of the class was to develop an event that touched on a key obstacle to community building in a community in need. As Samira has been focused on refugee women’s needs, she was quick to offer her community for information on what she has been told is a key obstacle to their development — transportation.While the Salt Lake City area has an expansive and easy to access public transportation system, there are not many resources on usage for new refugees that may not understand English or metropolitan transportation systems. Women of the World and the WLI group developed a brief workshop alongside UTA representatives to clarify the routes, pricing, and access to public transportation for the refugee community.
