Dear Campaign Advocate,
In anticipation of the fast-approaching Oct. 20 release of your local case statement—coinciding with Rails-to-Trails Conservancy's (RTC) release of the national "Active Transportation for America" report—below are details on two resources for your event. "Active Transportation for America" broadly quantifies, for the first time, the benefits that our nation can expect from increased bicycling and walking.
1) Briefing Webinar Save-the-Date: October 14, 2 p.m. EDT
We have scheduled a Web seminar (“webinar”) the week before your press release to address any questions you may have about RTC’s national report. Following an overview of the report’s methodology and content, there will be a question and answer period. The report will be available for download on or around Oct. 9.
Instructions to sign up for the webinar will follow in a separate e-mail. We encourage you to ask questions in advance, so please contact Kartik Sribarra with any questions or ideas.
2) Register your press event and receive free report copies
RTC will send 10 copies of the "Active Transportation for America" report for media distribution to all communities holding press events. Please let us know your event details by October 8 so we can send you these reports. An electronic version will be available for download and reprint as well.
