Join us on November 29th at noon for the next SAFE Network webinar.
The SAFE Network (Streets Are for Everyone) is a community of bike & walk friendly advocates, members of like-minded partner agencies and community leaders, inspired to create safe streets.
Local advocates are at the center of the movement to make our streets safer for all users. Making our roadways safe and comfortable for active transportation is part of the solution to many of our most pressing challenges. It helps reduce traffic violence, creates more equitable mobility options, creates healthier, more environmentally friendly, sustainable communities and improves our quality of life.
Building on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advocacy Network, which grew out of our 2021 Summit, this network incorporates new strategies, policies, and opportunities for funding that have been introduced nationally over the past two years.
Our network utilizes the foundational strategies and resources from the US DOT Safe System Approach, Vision Zero, and Complete & Green Streets for All, to build our capacity to work with municipal and county government, advocacy groups and partner agencies to create safer streets, particularly for our most vulnerable road users.
The SAFE Network includes:
- Monthly group meetings with presentations, guest speakers, discussions, and networking
- Online Support sessions customized to address any of the SAFE Network Advocacy resources or advocacy efforts in your community.
- Smart Cycling Online Classrooms will be held September 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th at 7pm. Register here!
