Organizations, businesses, agencies, and individuals passionate about trails, mobility, and everyday access to the outdoors are working together on issues that none can solve individually. An upcoming virtual gathering on August 27 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. will be an opportunity for workgroups to share and build upon the collective projects that began six months ago at the Active Mobility Summit. (Full agenda to come)

It will be a focused work session about making specific progress and a great way for new advocates to learn more about–and take part in–efforts to make a healthier, better-connected community.

We believe that everyone in our community should have multimodal access to education, employment, and recreational opportunities. Access to these opportunities must be safe, comfortable, convenient, and free from physical and systemic barriers for individuals of all ages, abilities, and racial and ethnic backgrounds. Meeting this essential standard makes our community healthier, more sustainable, and more just. This new alliance will be dedicated to improving mobility and promoting active lifestyles and everyday access to the outdoors.
