Roughly every three days, one person biking or walking is killed by someone driving a car in the Chicago region.

Walk with us to improve walking in Chicago on June 20

Join Active Transportation Alliance and Enlace Chicago for a community walk in Chicago's Little Village neighborhood to the first of seven public meetings for the Chicago Pedestrian Plan.

Chicago is a great city for walking. But amidst the park paths and tree lined streets, we still have roads that are difficult to cross, dangerous intersections and places inaccessible to people walking. All this can make it hard or unsafe for pedestrians to get around—especially those people with the least amount of mobility.

/The success of the Chicago Pedestrian Plan depends on the residents of Chicago who walk its sidewalks every day. City planners need to know where you love to walk, where you find it hard to walk and where you’d walk if you could. Don’t miss this chance to have your voice heard by people who are ready to enact change.

We invite you to join us on a neighborhood walk on June 20th to the first public meeting. We will meet near the intersection of California and Cermak avenues at the California Pink Line Station at 5:15 p.m.

From there, we will walk together to Farragut Academy at 2345 S. Christiana Ave. for the Pedestrian Plan meeting, which takes place 6-8 p.m. The walking route is just over one mile. Snacks, beverages and signs will be provided.

RSVP for the walk by calling 312.427.3325 X384 or emailing
