Los Angeles Walks:

  • Trains and mobilizes people to advocate for safe, accessible, and equitable walking environments in LA,
  • Promotes walking and pedestrian infrastructure in Los Angeles,
  • Educates local policymakers concerning the rights and needs of pedestrians of all abilities, 
  • Partners with community groups to reimagine public space, and
  • Fosters the development of safe and vibrant walking environments for all people. 

Our Campaigns and Projects

 

Our strategies for effecting change include:

  • BUILD POWER by training and mobilizing a broad constituency for safe, accessible walking conditions across Los Angeles, particularly in historically neglected neighborhoods. 
  • SHIFT CULTURE by amplifying the voices of those most severely impacted by traffic collisions and dangerous street design, and by collaborating with community members to reclaim public space for people.
  • DEVELOP Los Angeles Walks into a representative, strong, stable organization that brings a diversity of stakeholders into our leadership team, staff, and board.
