Campaigns & Advocacy
Local Motion is an advocacy organization. This means that we are always asking why. Why can't there be a bike lane on this street? Why can't we make it safe for kids to walk to school? Why can't it happen bigger, sooner, better? More often than you would expect, the answer is, "Because no one has asked until now."
But getting from why to yes often takes some work. You have to know your stuff. You have to show up, over and over. And you have to inspire a whole lot of people to say, "Why not?" That is what our advocacy is all about. We're just getting started with running campaigns. This section of our website is brand new. Our hope is that you will be inspired by what you see here to step up and become a leader for change. Because the only way all those "whys" will get to "Yes!" is if we work together.
So take a look at the campaigns that Local Motion is currently running. But more important, sign up using the "Count me in!" link in the sidebar and let us know you're onboard. Let's make some "yes" happen!
