America Walks is the only national organization devoted exclusively to making America a great place to walk. We do this by providing a voice for walking and walkability through federal government affairs, by providing strategy support, training and technical assistance to regional, statewide and local organizations and individuals, and via the Every Body Walk! Collaborative, a national partnership focused on increasing the visibility of walking and cultivating consumer demand for more walkable places.
The mission of America Walks is to make America a great place to walk by promoting safe, convenient and accessible walking conditions for all.
Vision Statement for a Walkable America
Every Body Walk! By 2020, walking in everyday life is embraced across America. Streets and neighborhoods are safe and attractive public places that encourage people of all ages, abilities, ethnicities, and incomes to walk for transportation, exercise, and recreation. Walkable community policies promote health, economic vitality, environmental sustainability, and social equity.
America Walks is an equal opportunity organization with a strong commitment to diversity and inclusivity. America Walks does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.
