About Us

About Us

America Walks is a leading national nonprofit that advances safe, equitable, accessible, and enjoyable places to walk and move by giving people and communities the resources to effectively advocate for change.

We are a national voice on walking and walkable communities and work to increase the  visibility and demand for public places that allow all people to move and walk in ways that are safe and make the most sense for them. At the regional, statewide, and neighborhood levels, we provide critical strategic support, training, and technical assistance to partner organizations and individuals, and serve as the convener of a large network of grassroots advocates.

Vision Statement for
a Walkable America

By 2030, streets and neighborhoods in all American communities are safe and attractive public places. People of all ages, abilities, ethnicities, and incomes will be able to move and walk in ways that are safe and make the most sense for them. Community policies and practices will promote walking and movement as a means to support health, economic vitality, environmental sustainability, and social equity.
