Advocacy

 

At the #FixContrib Rally

WABA has a 40-year history of successful advocacy in the D.C. region. We depend on our members and supporters to help us demonstrate the need for better bicycling in the District of Columbia; Montgomery, Prince George’s, Fairfax, Arlington counties; and the city of Alexandria.


Here’s what we’re working on right now:

1. Vision Zero – accountability in DC, Montgomery County and Alexandria (which have all committed to Vision Zero and have or are creating action plans) and pushing other jurisdictions to make similar commitments.

2. Building low-stress networks of protected bike lanes and trails

3. Enacting laws and policies that protect bicyclists


WABA’s advocacy is supported by your membership dollars. Join or donate to WABA today.
