One Step at a Time, Boston Advocates Boost Walking at the Local, State, National Levels

Despite their name, WalkBoston is not limited to Massachusetts’ biggest metropolis. The organization’s work extends to communities throughout the state, permeates state policy, and influences the national walking movement. At the community level, WalkBoston advocates work with public officials across Massachusetts to evaluate the walking environment, improve walking conditions, and engage local residents in walking. Their work is far-reaching — from consulting with planners and commenting on proposed designs for schools and casinos to holding walking audits and creating maps to market walking, WalkBoston advocates will go the extra mile to make sure that public spaces are designed with people in mind.
