This fall, the National Complete Streets Coalition is hosting a series of webinars to discuss the importance of establishing a clear vision and commitment when crafting an effective Complete Streets Policy. Safe streets advocates are invited to join us for our next Complete Streets Power Hour: Advocates Spotlight.
A strong Complete Streets policy can help ensure streets are safe for everyone. But how do we craft strong policies, or advocate to make them better? And once your community has a strong policy in place, how can you turn that policy into on-the-ground change? To answer these questions, safe streets advocates are invited to join us for our next Complete Streets Power Hour: Advocates Spotlight on Wednesday, October 25 at 1 p.m. ET.
Complete Streets Power Hours are a series of virtual gatherings happening this fall where we’ll discuss the importance of establishing a clear commitment and vision—and what that looks like in practice. During these webinars, we talk to elected officials, professional implementers, and the state and local advocates who hold them accountable. Most importantly, we connect with change makers, share best practices, and discuss what local, state, and federal policy changes we need to make Complete Streets the rule, not the exception.
During our October Power Hour, advocates will get the floor to build connections, talk strategy, and learn more about the tools they need to succeed. We’ll be joined by Anna Zivarts (Director, Disability Mobility Initiative).Register now
