National: Presentation

Entitled “American Streets Renaissance: Transportation and Planning Reform Now” this presentation addresses the pressing need for a new and expanded approach to national transportation and planning advocacy.

Mark Gorton argues that cycling and pedestrian advocates must find new ways to reach a larger audience of voters and decision makers. The message he proposes for advocates is clear: Increasing funding for pedestrian and cycling infrastructure while limiting the growth of auto infrastructure is the only sensible way forward for our country.
