Campaigns Training Pushes Advocacy in the Midwest

By Brighid O'Keane on October 30, 2012

imageFifteen advocates from three states roll up their sleeves to take action on campaigns they planned at the most recent Winning Campaigns Training in Kansas City, Missouri. Eight organizations were represented including KanBikeWalk, Tulsa Hub, Trailnet and the Sierra Club.

Hosted by BikeWalkKC, participants of the Alliance’s signature training gained the tools to craft and manage their powerful advocacy campaigns. Participants experienced the results of BikeWalkKC’s advocacy efforts on a bike share ride to the Heart of America Bridge, Riverfront Heritage Trail, and new facilities on Southwest Boulevard.

This affordable training wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors: Planet Bike, VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations, SRAM, Bikes Belong, AARP, Alta Planning + Design, Clif Bar, Team Estrogen, Sun Bicycles and Specialized.

Stay tuned for the 2013 Winning Campaigns Schedule!
