Let’s See What We Can Do, 2021

Before we get too far into the New Year, let’s reflect on the accomplishments of 2020. Specifically, on Norte’s advocacy efforts, which never stopped. Indeed, they broadened and deepened to include public health messaging, access to essential transportation, and opposition to racism.

In the effort for more equitable communities where people of all ages feel safe, comfortable, and welcome to walk and roll where they wish, we saw progress.

We see action and need towards improved accessibility for all everywhere, from street design to construction zones, to schools and parks and businesses. If you’re interested in helping your community move towards these goals, let me know. I’m here to help.

If you want to learn more about Pro Walk/Pro Bike advocacy and find your role in the effort, consider enrolling for the 2021 Advocate Academy (we start on February 4). You’ll walk away understanding better how decisions happen, how to have a positive impact, and have connected with natural allies.

As our Executive Director wrote last week, we need action and imagination. The time is now.

So, welcome, 2021. We’re ready for you. Let’s see what we can do.
