Feet First Philly formed three new subcommittees at the beginning of 2020 to better focus on three specific areas of our pedestrian advocacy: events, policy, and communications. Feet First Philly’s subcommittee and general meetings are open to everyone. You can learn more about each of the subcommittee’s work by contacting the subcommittee chair or about Feet First Philly’s general meeting by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Policy Subcommittee – Meets on the third Thursday of every month starting at 4pm. (Contact Daniel Trubman at email@example.com for more information.)
Feet First Philly’s Policy Subcommittee promotes and advocates for pedestrian oriented policies citywide. Recent work includes helping to draft the Recovery Streets platform, and responding to the City’s Washington Avenue’s Repaving and Improvement Project survey by asking respondents to choose the most pedestrian-friendly street layout.
Events Subcommittee – Meets on the fourth Wednesday of every other month at 5pm (Contact Jen Dougherty at Jenkbarr@gmail.com for more information)
The Events Subcommittee focuses on organizing and promoting Feet First Philly monthly walks. The subcommittee has recently shifted towards virtual walks and pedestrian oriented webinars during the pandemic. Join Feet First First Philly, the American Public Health Association, and other partners on Friday, July 24th from 12-1:30 for a webinar focused on achieving health equity with inclusive and interdisciplinary walk/move audits.
Communications Subcommittee – Meets the third Monday of every other month at 5:30pm (Contact Erika Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.) The Communications Subcommittee assists with developing and supporting Feet First Philly’s comprehensive communications strategy, and creating and maintaining content for various communications tools. We are currently working with Danni Sinisi, an art director and designer, on refreshing Feet First Philly’s logo and branding, which will be revealed in the near future – stay tuned!
