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. 

People have the ability to understand issues and identify solutions to problems in their own communities — some of the biggest changes to walking conditions and pedestrian safety come from work at the regional, local, and individual levels. America Walks provides our partners with the strategic support, training, and technical resources to effectively advocate for change and create tailored walking and movement solutions for their communities.

The Federal Government can play an important role in making American streets and neighborhoods pedestrian friendly. America Walks takes a lead in federal advocacy that supports policies, practices, and public funding that encourages safe movement in public spaces.
