Safe Routes to School

Pre-COVID-19, did your school/community have an active Safe Routes to School initiative?
If so, we'd love to hear from you!
We're looking for examples to share through an updated ISDH Division of Nutrition & Physical Activity Healthy Schools Toolkit and for our overall tracking of activities and success stories.

We're also hoping to convene interested stakeholders in a meeting yet this summer or early fall, to discuss the role of walking and biking as part of the solution to school re-opening challenges and to see how
we can best support new and ongoing
planning and programming efforts.

Interested or have info to share?
Reach out to info@hbdin.org. Thanks!

While much has been accomplished, so much more is needed to achieve true access & inclusion.

How are you advancing the ADA?

Public Spaces, Streets, and Racism

Too many of us believe the ideal: That our streets and public places were created for everyone. That they are safe and accessible. That people are connected to the places they need to go. That everyone has options for how they travel. As recent events have shown, though, that ideal is not reality. And reality disproportionately harms and kills Black people and other people of color.
