You’re invited to join us in celebrating a decade of Feet First Philly! Since 2012, Feet First Philly volunteers and Clean Air Council have worked together through public education and outreach, advocacy, and technical assistance to communities to advance walkability in Philadelphia.
To commemorate ten-years of pedestrian advocacy, we are hosting ten walks across Philadelphia. We’ll be highlighting favorite corridors, partner organizations, exciting pedestrian improvement projects, car-free public spaces, favorite food spots, and more. Below, you can learn more about each walk. We encourage you to register for walks in advance and to share our walks with your family and friends.
We are currently finalizing more walks celebrating 10 years of pedestrian advocacy and will be announcing details soon. Keep up to date on our walks and work by subscribing to our eNewsletter and following us on Facebook and Twitter @feetfirstphilly and on Instagram @feet_first_philly. As Feet First Philly looks toward the next ten years, we envision a future where all Philadelphians benefit from a safe and healthy pedestrian environment. To support our work, consider making a donation to Feet First Philly or purchasing a t-shirt.
