Jason Roberts is a founder of the Oak Cliff Transit Authority, and cofounder of Bike Friendly Oak Cliff and Team Better Block. He recently launched Better Block’s nonprofit arm, Better Block Foundation. His early efforts led to the return of a streetcar system to Southern Dallas. Better Block is an open-sourced initiative which rapidly transforms blighted neighborhood Main Streets in cities by working with local residents, artists, and stakeholders to create pop-up businesses while adapting streets with bicycle infrastructure, pedestrian amenities, and landscaping to show the value of walkable neighborhood destinations. The project has become an international movement occurring from Melbourne, Australia to Tehran, Iran. Jason has received a Champions of Change award from the White House, and been showcased at the 13th Annual Venice Biennale.
