Disability Mobility Initiative Kicks off Week Without Driving

October 22 – 29, 2021

Sign up to participate at https://www.disabilityrightswa.org/nodriving/ and tell us about your experiences using #WeekWithoutDriving

Friday, Disability Mobility Initiative will launch our inaugural Week Without Driving.

What is it like to try to get around your community without driving yourself? For people who can drive, and can afford a car, this isn’t something you think about. But for nearly a quarter of the people in our state – people with disabilities, young people, seniors and people who can’t afford cars or gas, this is our every day.

We want to challenge our elected leaders and transportation and transit agency staff to join us for our Week Without Driving, as the decisions you make around transportation planning, policies and funding impact all of us, and we want you to have the opportunity to learn with us.

Hosted by Disability Rights Washington, Disability Mobility Initiative, icollaboration with 350 Seattle, All Aboard Washington, Cascade Bicycle Club, Climate Solutions, Complete Streets Bellevue, Downtown on the Go, Everett Bike Walk, Feet First, Front and Centered, Futurewise, Hopelink, Kirkland Greenways, Living Well Kent, Move Redmond, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, Seattle Subway, Share the Cities, Transit Riders Union & Transportation Choices Coalition.
