Jason Roberts is the founder of the Oak Cliff Transit Authority, an originator of the Better Block Project, and co-founder of the Art Conspiracy and Bike Friendly Oak Cliff. He has been engaged in a lot of work to transform his community that has transcended that geographic location. His work with Build a Better Block has been replicated in many different communities and his team continues to work on how to turn that short-term action into long-term change. As someone who seems to have rather accidentally wound up in the community development field, he has a lot to share that we can all learn from.
