Walk and Roll the Vote Campaign

Active Transportation Alliance is gearing up for the 2019 Chicago elections for mayor and city council in February 2019. Our mission is to promote walking, bicycling and public transit to create healthy, sustainable and equitable communities. Through our Walk and Roll the Vote campaign, we plan to educate candidates and voters about the city’s most pressing transportation issues and propose a suite of policies to achieve progress over the next four years.

When municipal governments invest in biking, walking, and transit it can lay the foundation for communities that are healthy, sustainable and equitable. Active Transportation Alliance has learned that ensuring that a community or neighborhood is engaged in determining where and how investments are made is as important as the decision to invest. This survey is one way to determine and document input and engagement.  

Active Trans staff is currently working with community partners from across the city to develop a game-changing transportation platform for the City of Chicago. To date, meetings have been conducted with dozens of community, civic and advocacy organizations that work on issues related to creating healthier, more sustainable and equitable communities. We also held two Transportation Justice Dialogue events in August in Logan Square and Bronzeville to collect input from our members, supporters and the general public.

The following survey is intended to collect additional public input on the platform as we prepare to release it in the fall. It takes 2 to 5 minutes to complete the survey. Thank you for your input! Feel free to share the survey among your networks.
