Did You Know?

Half of school children walked or biked to school in 1969, but only 13 percent were doing it in 2009.

Sharing and connecting with other nonprofits

Our good friends at the Community Media Workshop, a nonprofit that helps nonprofits communicate and secure media coverage, invited Margo O'Hara (Active Trans communications director) and me (marketing guy) to present at a brown bag lunch yesterday.

It was a great opportunity to share some of our marketing and communication successes like Open Streets and Chicagoland Car-Free Day with other nonprofit communicators. We really enjoyed it and we got lots of great questions afterwards. It was also good to meet and connect with some of our peers.

We found out that there are people out there doing advocacy that ISN'T bike, walk or transit related…very cool!
