Do you wish your neighborhood, school, workplace or city were more bike-friendly, but don’t know how to even start making changes happen? Cascade’s Advocacy Leadership Institute may be for you.
An innovative program that has drawn national attention, ALI teaches people organizing skills to effect bike friendly change in their communities.
The class meets one evening a week for a couple months. Also, it’s free.
Applications are due February 27, so apply now.
Building on Cascade’s mission of creating better communities through bicycling, ALI trains passionate people from across the region to effectively organize their communities and advocate for better plans, policies and infrastructure. ALI is a hands-on eight week program including workshops, guest speakers and the opportunity to work on current projects around the city.
The spring program runs from mid-March to May, meeting downtown on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. weekly.
Apply now! There are a limited number of spaces in the class.

Then, when you graduate, join your local neighborhood chapter of Seattle Neighborhood Greenways for some hands-on experience with like-minded friends.
or start your own chapter – as in Kirkland, Burien, West Seattle…
I know a good candidate: TOM!!
although I guess as a journalist you’re supposed to be an objective observer rather than a participant.
I don’t think Tom pretends to be objective :)
And that’s totally fine by me. Advocacy journalism is legit and powerful when journos are transparent and fair in their advocacy and reporting.
I wish we had something like this in NYC.
