Come celebrate with us!



Join us at the Chicago History Museum on April 26 as we honor the local movers and shakers of walking, biking, and public transit


It’s time to shake things up at Active Transportation Alliance’s biggest bash of the year! Join us on April 26, 2023 for our annual Movers and Shakers Ball (formerly called our Awards Reception) at the Chicago History Museum.

Get ready for an evening of fun, delicious drinks, and gourmet hors d’oeuvres as we raise vital funds to fuel our advocacy work.

We’ll also be honoring some of our region’s biggest active transportation champions whose work to advance walking, biking, and transit is helping create a more sustainable, equitable, and connected region.

This year’s event will be honoring:


Mayor Katrina Thompson of Broadview
Public Leadership Award
47th Ward Chicago Alderman Matt Martin
Safe Streets Champion Award




Elevated Chicago in partnership with Commissioner Marisa Novara of the Chicago Department of Housing

Advancing Equity Award



Guests will enjoy a silent auction, a paddle raise, and a close up look at Chicago’s first L car that transported people from the Loop to the World’s Columbian Exposition in Jackson Park in 1893.

Take advantage of this opportunity to catch up with fellow active transportation supporters. Don’t worry, no formal attire required at this party! You won’t want to miss the fun!
