Maze 9 - Maze 9, Tel Aviv,
Improving the level of service required in public transportation is one of the steps required to reduce social and economic gaps, as well as the completion of the large shortage of subsidized and supervised early childhood homes that are essential for encouraging women to work in Arab society.
The impact of the lack of daycare centers and the low level of public transport services is especially evident in Arab society, where the poverty rate is 2.6 times higher than in the general population, and the employment rate among Arab women is 31.5% versus 79.7% for Jewish women.
The meeting will present the “Guide to the Arab Local Authorities for Mapping, Analysis and Presentation of Public Needs in the Field of Public Transport”, held following Sikkuy’s public participation meetings.
We will also discuss the impact of Resolution 922 on public transport services and the construction of day-care centers for young children, and the challenges and obstacles in implementing the decision before the heads of the local authorities, presenting the existing solutions and adapting them to the needs of the Arab population.
The meeting’s lecturers are Ina Branzburg, Transportation Coordinator and George Suleiman, Day Care Coordinator, Equality Policy Department at Sikkuy
