BikePGH Launches 2024 Advocacy Training Series

Level-Up (or start) Your Advocacy for Safer Walking & Biking

If you are part of a community advocacy group interested in pedestrian and/or bicycling safety, or if you’d like to start such a group, you need to have something your group can work on together that will lead to tangible change for your community — a campaign!

Of course, that’s easier said than done. You might already be running into some challenging questions:

  • There’s so much that needs to change! What do I focus on?
  • How do I get started?
  • Who can help me?
  • Who has the power to do something about this and how do we get them to act?

Or perhaps you’ve been running a campaign already, and it could use a boost of creativity and energy.

Wherever you are on your advocacy journey, we’re here to help!

Our Advocacy Training Series is designed to help advocates of any level experience (including no experience) craft a winning advocacy campaign and give you the support you need to be successful.

For our first training on March 26th, guest trainer Carter Lavin will lead an interactive virtual training about how to take all of your ideas for change and choose one campaign goal to focus on that is both impactful and winnable. This one is called “Choosing Winning Pedestrian & Bike Advocacy Campaigns” and will be held on Zoom.

Then, on May 4th, join us for an “on the move” workshop called “The Walk Audit: An Effective Tool For Community Change” led by our Advocacy Manager, Seth Bush. You will learn how to use a simple walk around your neighborhood to identify problems and meaningful solutions you can work towards, engage new people in your efforts, and how to “make the case” to elected officials about the need for change.

And finally, on June 1st, create a plan of action for your campaign in our full-day, hands-on “Strategies for Winning Campaigns” training led by BikePGH staff Seth Bush and Eric Boerer.
