I'd like to invite you to attend a community forum on transportation funding being hosted by the Alliance for Biking & Walking and the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition this Saturday, January 26 from 4-7 pm at Studioplex.
Community Forum: funding for bicycle transportation post-TSPLOST
Still feeling blue about alternate transportation options in the ATL following the failure of the T-SPLOST back in July? Want to learn more about how to effectively advocate for better cycling here in Atlanta, using proven planning, research, and organizing strategies--rather than reinventing the advocacy wheel?
Join ABC staff and volunteers at a Community Forum Saturday, January 26 from 4-7pm at Studioplex. Bring your big ideas and enthusiasm for cycling.
Facilitators from the Alliance for Biking & Walking and the League of American Bicyclists will give a short presentation on what's happening around the country in places where referendums have failed. A city planner will bring us up to speed on current bicycle projects in the city. Then you'll hear all about ABC’s newly developed campaign and how supporters can get involved.
The forum is an addition to the Winning Campaigns training ABC board, staff, and some volunteers are participating in Friday and Saturday (http://bit.ly/VGqd58 to learn more).
This is a free and informal event, with opportunities for mingling, asking questions, and sharing your point of view.
Complimentary appetizers will be provided, along with a small cash/donations wine table.
