How do you proclaim your desire to create or expand a Safe Routes to School program in your community? Shout it from a mountaintop? Mountains are very plentiful in Oregon, but they’re not an effective communication tool this day and age.
That’s why the Walk+Bike Network is rolling out a Safe Routes to School Outreach campaign this March.
What you can do:
- First, sign up to be part of the campaign.
- In March, customize the provided powerpoint for your community, practice your presentation for your friends and make an appointment with one of the groups listed below.
- In March or April, present to 1 group that should know about SRTS: like Parent Teacher Organizations, Metropolitan Planning Organization, Area Commission of Transportation, School Board, City Transportation Department, etc.
Our goal is to give Oregon communities a general understanding of Safe Routes to School, convey the news that there is now no dedicated funding for Safe Routes to School, and share ways to engage locally and statewide.
Join the movement! Be a Safe Routes to School Ambassador this spring!
