The "For Every Kid Coalition" is working on a push in the 2017 Legislative Session for funding dedicated to Safe Routes programming and infrastructure. They're also working on organizing a Town Hall meeting in Salem to talk about and build support here. (Eugene held the first one yesterday, and others are planned for around the state.)
That will be an important advocacy project for the coming year. So be on the lookout for more details on the Salem Town Hall!
