2022 Active Transportation Alliance Awards Reception
Join us as we gather on April 28 to celebrate the leaders and changemakers of active transportation in our region
Don’t miss this opportunity to honor our region’s most important active transportation champions. We’ll also be raising funds to advance Active Trans’ work to create cleaner, healthier, more equitable transportation options.
This year, the following individuals will be honored by Active Trans:
- Ralph Banasiak is receiving the Public Service Award for his regular columns in the Daily Herald that cast a spotlight on the local people and groups working to improve walking and biking in the region.
- For her efforts to make public transit stations accessible to people with disabilities, Active Trans is honoring US Senator Tammy Duckworth with its Public Leadership Award. Duckworth is responsible for including in the bipartisan infrastructure law $1.75 billion that will jump-start the process for bringing bus, train, and subway stations around the nation into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
- Active Trans is honoring Illinois State Rep. Anna Moeller with its Public Leadership Award for her role as the chief sponsor of state legislation that will bring better walking and biking options to state roads. The legislation requires the Illinois Department of Transportation to pay all the costs of walking and biking improvements on state roads — as it does for driving-related infrastructure.
(In-person attendance at the event is schedule dependent for Sen. Duckworth and Rep. Moeller.)
Get ready for tasty beverages, gourmet hors d’oeuvres, and fantastic skyline views from one of Fulton Market’s newest venues.
Win some great items at the event’s silent auction and learn about the important work that our awardees are doing in the region. There’s never been a better time to catch up with fellow active transportation supporters.
