Demonstrating Community Power Through Safer Streets
MKE Walks Walk Culture and Safety Ambassadors organize pedestrian safety demonstrations, lead walks in their neighborhoods and their knowledge about nature, history, and future developments. Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors provide people an opportunity to explore their communities together while meeting new people.

Crosswalk Actions promote pedestrian rights and safety on-location within a neighborhood. MKE Walks collaborates with the community through public demonstrations in order to bring attention to the crosswalk area as a safety zone where cars are required by law to yield and stop, allowing pedestrians to cross the street safely.

Civic Mindfulness For Safe Streets
It's no easy task for any Milwaukee resident to see real safe street and pedestrian infrastructure like a speed hump or a curb extension. To make real change, a great amount of civic engagement is required, which isn't easy for everyone to participate fully with life’s barriers. MKE Walks partners with neighborhoods as we co-organize and elevate one another to achieve more life-saving infrastructure and influence a culture of health and safety in our community.
We and our ambassadors have created a training curriculum called the Pedestrian Power Hour. Through Ped Power Hour workshops, we provide communities and organizers with the necessary skills to navigate complex City agencies and elected offices to secure safe streets.
