URGENT: Ask Senator Boxer to Stand Strong on Bicycling and Walking Funding

Californians: ACT NOW to Save Bicycling and Walking in the Transportation Bill: Take Five Minutes Today to Call or Email Senator Boxer

Senator Boxer needs to hear from California Safe Routes to School supporters right now.

The committee she leads, the Environment and Public Works Committee, is deciding what goes into the transportation bill today and tomorrow. She needs to know that we want her to fight for bicycling and walking programs like Safe Routes to School, Transportation Enhancements, and the Recreational Trails program.

If we don’t act now, bicycling and walking programs may be written out of our transportation system for the next six years.

At this very moment, she is negotiating with other Senators who don’t think bicycling and walking are an important part of the transportation bill. She needs to know that we have her back on this issue and she shouldn’t give up on these crucial programs.

Call Senator Boxer RIGHT NOW at (202) 224-3553 or email her.
Tell her:
“I am one of your constituents and I think bicycling and walking must be a part of the transportation bill. Please ensure that Safe Routes to School, Transportation Enhancements, and the Recreational Trails program continue with strong and dedicated funding as they are today.”

Thank you all for your help. And, please share this with your friends and family in California. We need a big turnout to make a difference!

    A heartfelt thanks to everyone who contacted Senator Boxer last week – we heard her office got thousands of messages from Californians regarding support for federal pedestrian and bicycle funding. It was super inspiring to see so many efforts across the state quickly mobilize in support!
