Join us for Active Transportation Advocacy Day on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 in Albany

Registration is now open

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

It's easy. It's fun.

1. First register with us

2. Join us for a planning call on Tuesday, January 26 at which we will provide background for our legislative visits, and make sure you know what to expect on Advocacy Day. Participation is not required, but we strongly encourage you to join the call.

3. Come to the Concourse at the Empire State Plaza in Albany at 8:30 AM on Tuesday, February 2.

On Advocacy Day, you'll join a team led by experienced advocates. As you arrive, we'll introduce you to your team members and review the day's schedule over coffee. Then it's off to make your voice heard. Team leaders will assist you in making the case for biking and walking in visits with legislators.

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. We'll also send a detailed agenda, a meeting room location, and information about the January 26 planning call.

Can't come to Albany on February 2?

Don't worry, you can still make your voice heard. Simply send us an email and/or participate in the January 26 planning call and we will provide you with the advocacy materials you need to host an in-district visit with your legislator.
