Last week New York Bicycling Coalition and the Bike Walk Alliance of Westchester & Putnam hosted the Alliance for Biking and Walking’s Winning Campaigns Training in White Plains, a three-day boot camp designed for leaders of local and state advocacy organizations.

Nineteen participants from 5 different states gained valuable insight from veteran advocate Jeff Miller, President and CEO of the Alliance for Biking and Walking, and Jacqueline Douglas, Executive Director of the Livable Streets Alliance, a Boston-based advocacy group.

Throughout the three-day weekend, novice and experienced advocates alike learned key organizing tactics in strategizing, funding and conducting campaigns that transform the transportation landscape in their cities and states.
