Thank you for visiting! Our W Alameda event will be focused on the gaps, barriers and opportunities facing all who walk, use a wheelchair or take the bus as their primary form of transportation. Pedestrian Dignity events are rooted in *lived experience*, cross-agency connection/collaboration, youth voice/leadership, and more.
It being hosted by Nica, Phyllis, Alejandra, Justin, Jonathon and other local advocates alongside the Pedestrian Dignity project. It is not formally hosted by any one organization or entity. You are joining this event knowing the risks involved. We will send a planning email out to all who RSVP.

...we want you to join us! While we don't want to limit participation, we do want to be mindful of safety related to group size. Please RSVP as this event is limited to 25.
Route Planning Notes: The route shouldn’t take much more than an hour on the leading half up to our destination at W Alameda & S Federal, giving us plenty of time to stop, process, and discuss along the way, and should land us on the bus back to the meetup location at or before 5:30 pm.
We are excited to have you and your team with us for this event, and please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
