Get involved or learn more about our top 2019 priority to #FixRainier Ave, Seattle’s most dangerous street.
- Our Safety Over Speeding campaign pushed the city to improve Seattle’s most dangerous street – Rainier Ave S.
- We helped scout and advocate for the best route for a N-S and E-W neighborhood greenway in our neighborhood.
- We brought attention the inequity around traffic signal timing in our community compared with more affluent an whiter communities in Seattle. Since then, some signals now give people walking more time to cross the street.
- And much more!
