During the COVID-19 pandemic, while many of us are working from home, our work continues. In this time of crisis, our movement for safe streets for all New Yorkers remains critical. While we can’t rally at the steps of City Hall or organize in-person, we all have a role to play in continuing to advocate for safe streets from home. Here are some ways to stay involved.
Biking is a key form of transportation right now, it allows frontline workers and mutual aid volunteers to make essential trips while also abiding by social distancing guidelines. TA’s #BikeMatch is connecting New Yorkers in need with donated bikes. Need a bike? Have a bike? Fill out our form to get involved.
Push for Open Streets
Streets make up over 80 percent of New York City’s open space, and during this crisis that space is crucial to public health. Open streets grant people space to observe safe physical distancing, and are essential to everyone’s safety. Support Open Streets.
