The National Complete Streets Coalition is just that—a coalition—and our success is made possible by our many partner organizations. Voices for Healthy Kids is the newest member of our Steering Committee and we’re proud to welcome them. We sat down with Stephanie Vaughn, Marketing Manager at Voices for Healthy Kids, to learn more about their work and what drives their commitment to Complete Streets.
Today, thousands of communities across the country are celebrating the 14th annual International Walk to School Day, highlighting the need for safe places for children to walk and bicycle in their communities.
