Help WABA celebrate our partners!
At WABA, we love bikes— and, we know our work isn’t just about bicycling. Transportation touches so many other issues: from housing, to food access, to environmental conservation. WABA is able to empower people to ride bikes and transform our streets by working in coalition with our fellow nonprofit organizations across the region.
This Giving Tuesday, we’re proud to share some organizations who are our partners in the work for a more equitable and sustainable region. All of the organizations below showed up for WABA in some way in 2021, by signing onto a letter or campaign, partnering on a class or event, helping craft a forthcoming transportation equity platform, or amplifying a project.
