Join BikeWalk NC and fellow cycling, walking and active transportation advocates in Raleigh to meet with state legislators, show them who you are and how important it is to support safe infrastructure for people biking and walking. The goals for 2019 BikeWalkNC Lobby Day are to focus our messaging to positively impact safety for cycling and walking and to ensure that our representatives understand the existing health, environmental, economic and placemaking benefits of investments in active transportation infrastructure.
This year’s General Assembly has been dynamic and has shown an interest for active transportation funding, policy and defining new modes of transportation within existing and future bicycle, pedestrian and multi use facilities.
YOU WILL HELP:
Educate our legislators about the rights of people who ride and walk.
As their constituents, build relationships with them to bring all available federal, state and local resources to their districts for active transportation infrastructure, education, encouragement and enforcement.
Inform legislators on the issues confronting bicycling and walking in North Carolina.
