Ped 101 - Free Advocacy Training

Date: 
Tuesday, May 10, 2016 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

In 2016, WalkBoston is rolling out free, beginner pedestrian advocacy trainings we’ve titled "Ped 101,” and we'd love you to come! Our goal is to help build the constituency of people that are comfortable to speak up for walking in their own community. Sessions are a small group, guided conversation and take place in our conference room - so please make sure to sign up in advance. Please feel free to bring a lunch for the mid-day sessions; we’ll have beer or wine for the after work happy hour sessions.

This session is helpful if you're interested in learning about: 

  • walkability, urbanism & the associated lingo (what's a "tight turning radius"?),

  • making neighborhoods safer for people walking & running,

  • how you can advocate for change in your own community.

How do I get to the WalkBoston office?

WalkBoston is located in Old City Hall, at 45 School Street, Boston, MA 02108. We're in the basement of the building, and the easiest way to get here is to come in from the Court Square entrance (the rear of the building - our door is immediately on the left as you enter). We're a short walk from the MBTA Orange/Blue line (State Street) or Red/Green line (Park Street).

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
