Elevated Chicago’s Jannice Newson has harnessed the power of social media to draw attention to the walking conditions in the city’s neighborhoods. Her series of viral TikTok videos highlight disparities in pedestrian conditions and in access to Chicago’s public transportation. The videos support Elevated Chicago in its effort to advance equitable transit-oriented development (eTOD).
