We would like to thank Johnathon Stalls for granting us permission to use his illustration. Description: a black and white ink drawing depicts the cross-section of a street with several motor vehicles, a person using a wheelchair, and two pedestrians in the median. There are stars below the street. The words "Equity Accessibility Health Safety Dignity" are wrapped around the bottom of the illustration.
