For Every Kid is a growing coalition of community, public health, and social justice organizations dedicated to making safe routes to school for every kid by advocating for dedicated funds for Safe Routes to School programs and projects that make streets safe. Supporters include the Community Alliance of Tenants, the Community Cycling Center, and thousands more.
Right now, kids who most need opportunities for physical activity don’t have the necessary safe infrastructure—sidewalks, crosswalks, and bike lanes—in their communities and around their schools to support a healthy childhood.
Safe Routes to School Works! When education is combined with making streets safe, there is a 40% average increase in walking and biking trips to school. This kind of comprehensive program will have regional significance in regards to health, safety, and equity.
