Complete Streets Ambassador Summer Training
Over the last year, all throughout greater New Orleans, we’ve seen great momentum in making our streets built to share. And it would not have been possible without the contributions of Bike Easy’s Complete Streets Ambassadors
These Ambassadors are local residents, like you, who want to improve biking and walking in their community by advocating for it — to neighborhood associations, at community events, and directly to elected officials. Create change in your community by applying to be a Complete Streets Ambassador.
The Ambassador program teaches basic organizing skills and provides support for community residents to pursue a project within their community, as well as to work together as a team on a larger Bike Easy led project.
This past spring, Ambassadors helped plan and install a pop-up protected bikeway in Kenner, met with New Orleans and Jefferson Parish council-members, and garnered growing support for biking from local businesses and organizations.
Bike Easy is now looking for our next class of Ambassadors. The program begins with a two-day weekend training on August 4th and 5th. Apply by next Friday, July 20th!
