20×20 Meetup—Wards 1 & 2

Do you want more protected bike lanes on your route or calmer streets in your neighborhood or commute? Do you want to see faster progress on safer streets and protected bike lanes around DC? Us, too!

Come over to the WABA office on November 21 for a Ward 1 and 2 meetup and strategy session. We will dive into WABA’s 20×20 campaign to support 20 new miles of connected, protected, and equitable bike lanes in DC  and take a close look at some of the most critical opportunities is Wards 1 and 2.

We will talk strategy, fun tactics, and identify next steps for solidifying support. And, with your help, we will lay the groundwork for a fun, organized, and effective group taking on safer streets projects across Ward 1 and 2.

Come meet community advocates, neighbors, and that person you only know on Twitter, roll up your sleeves, and get started!

Safe Streets for Ward 5 Monthly Meetup

Safe Streets for Ward 5 is a group of neighbors working together for safer streets and more options for getting around the ward by foot and bike. Join us at our next monthly meeting and get involved!

You don’t need to ride a bike, you don’t need to be a traffic engineer, and you don’t need to be political. No matter your schedule and no matter your background, you have a role to play in winning safe streets across DC. We hope you can join us!
