Active Transportation Funding and the Next Transportation Bill
In September 2014, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy
engaged leading Republican and Democratic pollsters to find out what
likely 2016 voters for both parties really thought about the federal
role in encouraging trails, walking and biking. The results were
overwhelmingly positive. Join us on this webinar to review the poll
findings, learn the messages that resonated with voters, and get the
resources to use this information with important decision makers to
advocate for funding of active transportation. This webinar has been rescheduled for April 29.
