You’re fired up about issues like ending parking minimums and building more bike lanes, but how do you take that passion and turn it into action? One big way is by talking to the people who have the power to make changes to local laws and policies: your mayor, your city council representative, your village president. It can be intimidating to meet with these leaders and present your proposals in a way that ensures they will listen.
This Local-Motive stop is here to help. Isaac Gonzalez, a Strong Towns member and neighborhood association president in Sacramento, has been an outspoken advocate for safe streets after a tragic car crash in his community—and his advocacy has resulted in real change. Join Gonzalez and Strong Towns Director of Membership and Development Norm Van Eeden Petersman to learn about how you can start the Strong Towns conversation with your electeds confidently and successfully.
This virtual tour stop takes place on September 21 at 12pm CT. Join us!
The course is worth 1 continuing education credit through the AICP.
