Bicycle Friendly America Winter 2018 - 25

NEW ADVOCACY SOFTWARE
ENABLES STATE AND LOCAL ACTIONS

T

he League of American Bicyclists recently started using Phone2Action
as its new advocacy platform. This
new advocacy software will allow the
League to take actions that support bicycling at every level of government. In our
first use of Phone2Action we generated
1,400 emails to members of the Senate
Finance Committee in 3 days to respond
to a proposed repeal of the Bicycle Commuter Benefit.
Phone2Action provides a great platform for advocacy at every level of government:
* Easy to create actions, with two attractive microsite templates
* Embeddable actions that can be integrated into any website

WINTER 2018

* Action Center at http://bikeleague.
org/TakeAction can accommodate
an unlimited number of actions
* Easy to share contact information
gathered in campaigns with our
member organizations
If you are a state, local or individual
advocate member of the League of
American Bicyclists you can use Phone2Action to reach our members in your
area and other people in your state. To
do so, please contact our Policy Director,
Ken McLeod, at ken@bikeleague.org
and consult the Guide to Taking Action
available at http://bikeleague.org/sites/
default/files/LeagueofAmericanBicyclists_Guide_to_Taking_Action.pdf.

LEAGUE PRIORITIES FOR STATE ACTIONS
The League of American Bicyclists has
identified five priority Bicycle Friendly
Actions that we believe all states should
take in order to create a Bicycle Friendly
America for Everyone. These five Actions are listed on each state's Bicycle
Friendly State report card: http://bikeleague.org/content/state-report-cards.
These five Actions are:
* Complete Streets Law/Policy
* Safe Passing Law (3 feet or more)
* Statewide Bike Plan adopted in the
last 10 years
* 2% or more in Federal Transportation Funds Spent on Biking and
Walking
* Bicycle Safety as an Emphasis Area
