Nonprofit Advocacy Organizations and Safe Routes to School:
Building Capacity and Leadership through an Effective Campaign

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011 1-2PM ET

Safe Routes to School programs across the nation are growing at exponential rates as communities begin to see the value of encouraging the simple act of walking and bicycling to school and in daily life from an early age. Nonprofit advocacy organizations involved in schools, health and transportation have found a way to inspire communities through the Safe Routes to School movement, and its momentum, to proliferate the message of their organization, build membership and grow their staff.

Please join us as we talk with several organizations that have successfully engaged at the state and local levels to utilize Safe Routes to School to build capacity and leadership through an effective Safe Routes to School campaign.


  • Dan Grunig, Executive Director, Bicycle Colorado
  • Jeremy Grandstaff, Membership Services Director, Alliance for Biking and Walking
  • Sarah Shipley, Director of Marketing and Communications, BikeWalk-KC (Kansas City)

This webinar is part two of a six-part webinar series by the Safe Routes Partnership that focuses on bicycling and Safe Routes to School.

Thank you to the SRAM Cycling Fund for making this series possible.
