Pedestrian Advocacy

Oregon Walks is a nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to making walking and the conditions for walking safe, convenient and attractive for everyone.

Everyone is a pedestrian at some point during the day. We work to ensure every person, regardless of income, ability or geography, can interact with their community by walking. A safe and accessible walking environment provides an affordable and healthy way to move around the city, supports economic development for small businesses and allows our citizens to age in place. This is of utmost importance to build Portland into a healthy, equitable and connected city.

In the last year we helped Portland launch Vision Zero--part of a national effort to reduce traffic fatalities to zero. We brought over 25 organizations and 800 individuals - most recently, Portland’s City Council - on board with this concept and dedication to ensuring streets are safe and people are prioritized. We also coordinate Walktober--a month-long event series in October that includes 50+ walks and engages 500 participants--aimed at encouraging healthy and connected communities.
