Attendees Needed!! The Alliance for Biking and Walking, Winning Campaigns Training in Edison NJ

The Alliance for Biking & Walking, Winning Campaigns Training to be hosted by the New Jersey Bicycle Coalition is in danger of being canceled if minimum number of participants (25) is not met. The Alliance for Biking & Walking is only hosting 6 of these Winning Campaigns Trainings in the US this year. The host site in Edison NJ is within a 5 minute walk of the Edison Train Station which is on the NE Corridor line.

Obviously, the New Jersey Bicycle Coalition is very worried that this event will have to be canceled which would be a setback for the young organization. This is an excellent training opportunity for any person involved in the Livable Streets movement, even those that may not be directly bike/ped oriented. In fact, I've been told that much of what is taught in the training session can apply to any type of community activism and that all groups are welcomed to sign up.

Finally, if attendees are members of the Alliance for Biking & Walking they can sign up for the discounted rate of $75 vs $125 (if not a member of the Alliance, join the NJBC for $15 to pay a total of $90). However interested persons will have to act very soon since these early bird rates will go up by tomorrow May 4th.
