Take Action

Current Actions

America Walks is proud of the work its local and state advocates do to advance walkability across the United States.  Here are some ways you can get involved with the walking movement and support America Walks.

Tell Congress To Support Walkable Communities with Two Important Pieces of Legislation

Every American deserves the right to safe and accessible walking conditions. We need your help to make sure that Congress prioritizes walking in current legislation.

The U.S. House Transportation Committee is scheduled to vote on a new multi-year transportation bill.  We anticipate renewed attacks on the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), the main source of funding for walking and other active transportation projects and programs.

This important bill would ensure that future transportation investments made by state Departments of Transportation and Metropolitan Planning Organizations create appropriate and safe transportation facilities for all those traveling on our streets – whether walking, bicycling, driving, taking public transportation, and regardless of age or ability.
