Being an advocate
Ped Advocacy 101 — Starting in 2016, we have offered free info sessions at our office on this topic 1-2x a month. Sign up here. Our goal is to help build the constituency of people that are comfortable to speak up for walking in their own community. This slide show provides citizens with effective techniques for pedestrian advocacy initiatives at the community level. Ped101
