STATEWIDE ADVOCACY NETWORK
Advocacy works the same everywhere. Someone decides to get involved, finds people who share their values, learns from others who have done the work before, and then starts making real change on the ground. Feet First recognizes that there are many local advocates throughout Washington who are already working to make our streets safer and our communities more walkable. It is not just a matter of safety, it is a matter of equity. Feet First established the Statewide Advocacy Network in 2019 to help advocates around the state who are on that journey by offering support, championing their efforts, sharing best practices, and connecting them to like-minded advocates. Together, we can build momentum statewide to reform our transportation system.
