How Do We Make Safer Streets?

We partner with community-based groups and organizations to listen and learn what walking issues are important to them.

We advocate with our partners for better laws, more sidewalks and signed crosswalks, education programs, community improvements designed for pedestrians, and increased funding to support these activities.
