2023 Annual Alliance Member Party

Celebrate with us on Tuesday, November 28!

Join us at the Revolution Brewing Taproom for our Annual Alliance Member Party (formerly Annual Meeting).

While the event has a new name, it’s still the fun night for our members that you know and love! Come out and celebrate the year’s accomplishments, meet fellow members, and offer a round of applause for our advocate and volunteer awardees.

The movement has grown in leaps and bounds over the past few years, and while there’s still important work to be done, there are also so many wins to recognize and celebrate together.



The evening kicks off with a happy hour followed by a presentation of volunteer and advocacy awards (see below), updates on our work, and electing new members to our board of directors. It’s a little bit of business and a LOT of party.

  • A State of the Movement from Executive Director Amy Rynell.
  • Awards celebrating the work of our dedicated advocates and volunteers.
  • A chance to connect with fellow members, supporters, and Active Transportation Alliance staff.
  • Refreshing libations, courtesy of Revolution Brewing, and tasty snacks from Nando’s Peri Peri.
  • Voting in our 2024 slate of Board of Directors.

This party won’t be the same without you!

We’re thrilled to be honoring the following recipients with 2023 Volunteer and Advocate of the Year awards:



Faraz Hussain: Volunteer Co-Manager of Volunteer Accommodations at Fifth Third Bike the Drive
Kailen Lee: Set-up Super Volunteer for Fifth Third Bike the Drive
Michael Schra: Member of our Fifth Third Bike the Drive Volunteer Steering Committee and Tear Down Volunteer Lead at Bike the Drive



Campaign to Stop I-55 Expansion

The I-55 corridor on Chicago’s South West Side is among the most environmentally burdened areas of the city, with traffic from nearby industry contributing to poor air quality. Environmental justice organizations — including LVEJO, Illinois Environmental Council, Neighbors for Environmental Justice, NRDC, and others — are leading efforts to push back on plans to expand I-55 and add additional lanes, which would worsen already poor environmental conditions.

This work highlights the deep interconnections between the movement for environmental justice and our advocacy for a more sustainable and equitable transportation system. See coverage of the issue from the Chicago Tribune and NRDC.
