The 2017 Oregon Legislative Sessioin is in full swing! Oregon Walks has prioritized the following five issue areas when it comes to legislative priorities. We are actively tracking bills related to each of these priorities, and are engaging with legislators and partners to ensure their success. 

Healthy Travel Options to School - Community Walks! 

As part of The Healthy Travel Options to School Plan, we are partnering with Portland Public Schools and Safe Routes to School to lead 15 Community Walks to identify barriers to walking.

This past week, Oregon Walks hosted our first-annual volunteer appreciation party to celebrate the hundreds of hours logged by community members in 2016 who want to help protect our collective “Right to Roam.” Thanks to our dedicated staff, our gracious donors, and thoroughly committed Board Members, Oregon Walks is flourishing, and the size of the community who give their time to volunteer for our cause reflects our ongoing growth.
