Grassroots Advocacy Captures the Hearts and Minds of Fellow Advocates
For more than a decade, BikePGH has been helping to organize fellow grassroots bicycle and pedestrian advocates to make the City and region safer for people who bike and walk.
As a way to amplify BikePGH’s mission and goals, we’ve taken our years of experience, resources and local knowledge and published a new training guide called the Grassroots Advocacy Toolkit: Starting and Sustaining Neighborhood Bike and Pedestrian Committees. We first launched this toolkit about five years ago, but much has changed since then.
The second edition of the Grassroots Advocacy Toolkit features content updates, an easy to read format, and engaging graphics! We are thrilled to present this working document to help advocates create transformative communities that are champions for safe streets.
Join Us For a Lunch and Learn As We Reveal the Toolkit
On Wednesday, February 10, at noon, we are hosting an interactive virtual showcase where we will have the first public viewing of the new toolkit. Our Community Organizer will present and answer questions about how to use the toolkit for practical purposes. After the presentation, the toolkit will be available on our Neighborhood Bike and Pedestrian Committee webpage for download. All are welcome and there is no need to have any background knowledge to attend.
