A reminder about the economy of livable streets

Here is a reminder from one bicycle commuter that not all who ride and walk do so as a choice. Some need to walk and ride and use transit as a matter of economics.

At Missouri Livable Streets we work to create change and provide information that is accessible to all citizens regardless of their abilities or means. Sometimes, however, we tend to run with people just like us. We need reminders that there remain great numbers of Americans who simply will not come to advocacy trainings, get organized and advocate for change at the times and places we tell them to. Such invisibility clearly is not due to apathy so much as these folks are busy working (maybe a couple jobs), raising families and trying to keep it together financially.

Elly, thanks for the reminder. We can and will try harder to remember those who truly need livable streets.
