Active Transportation Advocacy Day

Tuesday, February 3, 2015
Concourse – Empire State Plaza

Registration Ends Today!!

Join the New Yorkers for Active Transportation (NY4AT) coalition in meetings with our state senators and assembly members to tell them all New Yorkers, regardless of age or ability, need access to trails and community infrastructure that supports safe and healthy biking and walking.

Just REGISTER and then show up at the Concourse at the Empire State Plaza in Albany on Tuesday, February 3 at 9:00 a.m. for bagels and coffee. (We’ll send a more detailed agenda and a room location as we approach February 3.)

Begin with a morning briefing with experienced active transportation advocates, legislators, and staff from State transportation agencies. Following the morning program, you’ll join a team of fellow active transportation supporters in meetings with legislators throughout the day.

There is no cost to participate, but registration is required. Prior to Advocacy Day, we will email you your legislative appointments, team assignments, background information and talking points.
