Destiny Thomas

Los Angeles Department of Transportation
Transportation Planning Associate II
Dr. Destiny Thomas is a Transportation Planning Associate II with LADOT. A Cultural Anthropologist with a community-organizing background, she takes a multi-sector approach to elevating the human element and lived experiences in the realms of planning, public health, and socially-responsible marketing. While at LADOT, a key focal point of her work is increasing access to active transportation and influencing a more community-centered planning and design process. Dr. Destiny Thomas is responsible for working with the Vision Zero Policy and Programs division to deliver projects that improve safety and health outcomes on and around the high injury network. Her role includes, but is not limited to, developing engagement strategies that are used throughout the Department, implementing Safe Routes for Seniors community plans, and establishing cross-sector partnerships that situate transportation planning within a broader social context. Areas of interest include: developing a "dignity-infused planning" methodology, anti-displacement studies, healing environmental and infrastructural trauma, and bolstering agency and voice in marginalized communities within municipal planning processes.
