Well, whatever is on your transportation wish list, your chance to tell our elected officials in Olympia is coming up next week. Futurewise is hosting ‘Transportation Advocacy Day (from Spokane)’ next week to let people speak with their legislator via Skype about their concerns.
Futurewise is a statewide public interest group working to promote healthy communities and cities while protecting farmland, forests and shorelines.
As Futurewise says, we can’t just expect state legislators to do the right thing. You have to make it clear, we need real funding options. For more information, or to sign up to participate in Transportation Advocacy Day, click here.
Adding a historical note: Putting on Transportation Advocacy Day in Olympia is a collaborative effort with many partners, including Futurewise. It grew out of Bicycle & Transportation Alternatives Lobby Day, founded by the Bicycle Alliance of Washington in 1997, and it's great to have so many organizations working together to make the case for transportation independence–being able to choose any mode and have it be accessible and safe.
Many thanks to Futurewise for making the high-tech connections possible so Spokane folks who can't make the trek to Olympia can be involved!
Thanks for expanding on that. It's a great event as some on the east side of the state don't always feel our voices are being heard on the west side.
