Passing bike-friendly ballot measures
Washington State is gaining momentum for making smart investments in transportation that promote safety, health and economic development. Through state, regional and local transportation measures passed by voters and elected officials over the past 18 months, biking and walking investments are at an all-time high.
A key component of these new investments are people-powered bike-friendly ballot measures. Trainings, like Cascade’s Advocacy Leadership Institute; how-tos from Cascade’s Resource Hub; and strategic advising from Cascade policy staff help local advocates and organizers gain the tools and skills to pass bike-friendly measures at the ballot box.
While Cascade Bicycle Club still endorses ballot measures, at the beginning of 2016 all candidate endorsements shifted to its 501(c)(4) partner, Washington Bikes.
