Safe Streets: Narratives of Pedestrian Advocacy

On February 8,, in partnership with Nexus Community Partners’ Boards and Commissions Leadership Institute, is hosting a free event — Safe Streets: Narratives of Pedestrian Advocacy.

This is an evening of education, and sharing experiences of being a pedestrian. Come hear examples from local advocates and government about how we have or could incorporate the voices and lived experience of pedestrians into current plans so that all can safely navigate our streets.
