The New Jersey Bicycle & Pedestrian Advocacy Network aims to bring together advocates from around the state to share case studies and best practices in bike/ped advocacy and to discuss making New Jersey a better place to live with safer, more enjoyable ways to bike and walk. Members of the advocacy network include members of local non-profit advocacy organizations, members of bicycle & pedestrian advisory committees, and residents who are looking to make improvements to walking and biking in their cities/towns.
The concept of the Bicycle & Pedestrian Advocacy Network stems from a discussion had during the 12th Annual New Jersey Bike & Walk Summit session ‘Advocates in Action Part 2: COVID and Beyond’, where panelists came to a consensus that such a network was necessary to strengthen the role of local advocacy organizations and advisory committees working to make their streets safer and to provide a way for these groups to support each other.
Meetings will cover topics such as adopting and implementing Complete Streets and Vision Zero policies, open streets, equitable mobility, trail network development, getting funding for bike/ped projects, building municipal and state level support for bike/walk-friendly cities, and more!
