Contact your Senator today to preserve funding for walking, trails and biking programs such as Safe Routes to School!

Dear Moscow Citizens,

Please show your support and sign the petition on the link below.

As Congress ramps up efforts to pass a national transportation bill, some senators and representatives are pushing to eliminate the dedicated federal programs without which most of our nation’s walking, trail and bicycling infrastructure would not exist. These programs currently receive less than two cents of every transportation dollar, yet have tremendous impacts on their communities.

Make no mistake: If we lose this battle, communities all around the country will find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to build needed walking, biking and trail systems.

Since Idaho Senator Crapo is on the Environment and Public Works Committee,
you have an important voice in this debate. If Senator Crapo stands with us, it could mean the difference between a future that includes trails, walking and bicycling… and one in which Americans are denied the innumerable economic, mobility and health benefits of active transportation.

America Walks is partnering with Rails-to-Trails Conservancy to ask you to sign your name to the constituent letter* below by Tuesday, June 14:
