Advocacy Leadership Institute Fall 2018: Application Deadline!

Application Here:

The Application period opens Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018 and closes Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance to the training by Friday, Oct. 5, 2018.

The Fall 2018 Advocacy Leadership Institute (ALI) training will consist of two weekend retreats focusing on training advocates who want to be part of a more walkable, bikeable Seattle. Between sessions, participants are encouraged to attend community meetings, engage with other advocates and safe streets advocacy groups, and apply skills from the training. In addition to attending both training sessions, all participants are expected to complete a small individual or group project which applies skills learned through the training. This ALI training is FREE, to ensure that cost is not a barrier to attend.


1. Training Session #1: Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018 – all day (exact hours and Seattle location TBD)
2. Training Session #2: Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018 – all day (exact hours and Seattle location TBD)
3. Graduation Celebration and Project Presentations – date and location TBD, based on participant availability

Weekly readings and event listings in between the retreats

Participant Expectations:

Between sessions, attend at least one community meeting about one Seattle project or advocacy issue, or participate in a similar activity. E.g. Seattle Bike Advisory Board, City Council, project open house, etc.
