Don’t Miss Out on Bike Advocacy Workshop
There is still time and room for bicyclists and others to sign up for FABB’s free bike advocacy workshop this Saturday, 4 February, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 8304 Old Keene Mill Rd in Springfield (across the street from the Springfield Golf and Country Club). Registration has been extended and you can sign up via Google. Lunch will be provided.
Participants can look forward to learning basic tools and strategies for improving conditions for bicycling in Fairfax County. Topics include: components of a successful advocacy campaign, developing an advocacy plan, online advocacy tools, and why citizen advocates make a difference. Attendees will have time to develop their own campaigns. Presenters are local citizens with a proven record of leading advocacy campaigns: FABB members Sonya Breehey, Bruce Wright, and Alan Young, and Fionnuala Quinn of The Bureau of Good Roads.
More information about the workshop can be found at www.fabb-bikes.org or by contacting Bruce Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-328-9619.
