Work to ensure every citizen, regardless of income, ability or geography, can interact with their community by walking. Oregon Walks is dedicated to promoting walking and making the conditions for walking safe, accessible and attractive to everyone.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, Oregon Walks leveraged more than 25 public, private and nonprofit partnerships to coordinate 41 community walks and to advocate for 36 policies and projects. All was accomplished with two staff members supported by 60 volunteers who contributed more than 1,500 hours.
“I love Oregon Walks. They’re dedicated to safer streets and educating people about the possibilities on our roads and in our communities. This gives me the hope I need after losing my son, Dustin, in a preventable crash.” —Kristi Finney-Dunn, founder, Oregon and SW Washington Families for Safe Streets
Lancaster Street Lab will match every G!G donation to Oregon Walks up to $1,500.
