Our vision
Los Angeles is a vibrant city in which people can and do walk regularly for transportation, exercise, or fun. Policymakers and residents appreciate walking as a valuable form of transportation, and Angelenos of all ages, ethnicities, incomes, and abilities are able to walk or move safely through their neighborhoods.
About LA Walks

We train and mobilize Angelenos to advocate for safe, accessible, and equitable walking environments in neighborhoods across Los Angeles. We amplify the voices of those most immediately impacted by traffic collisions and educate local policymakers concerning the rights and needs of pedestrians of all abilities.
