Dear Campaign Advocate,
Normally we try not to e-mail you on consecutive days. But we wanted to share an especially strong and supportive story that just came out yesterday, July 16.
This week, prominent journalist and urban thinker Neal Peirce titled his column, "Biking and Walking: Our Secret Weapon?" Drawing on a conversation with Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) President Keith Laughlin, RTC’s "Active Transportation for America" report, and a handful of your case statements, Peirce argues that "…major walking and biking efforts aren’t some joke, or just an interesting idea. They’re imperative."
Read the full column now. And thank you for your hard work, which continues to pay dividends—not just in your community, but more and more on the national stage.
