The Advocacy Leadership Institute (ALI) will develop local bicycle advocates and enthusiasts into leaders who inspire communities to advocate – and inspire others to advocate – for a bike-friendly Seattle.
Building on Cascade Bicycle Club’s mission to create better communities through bicycling, ALI will train a diverse group of 15 people from across Seattle to organize in their communities, advocate for bicycle-friendly transportation plans and policies, and get better bicycling infrastructure built on the ground.
The 2012 Advocacy Leadership Institute will run from July 1 1 through Sept. 24, meeting nearly weekly on Wednesday nights from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm in downtown Seattle. Participants are expected to attend at least six out of the eight trainings. Though the program is free, participants must be truly committed to making Seattle a great city for bicycling.
Applications are due by Friday, June 1. Admittance to the program will be based on your passion for making Seattle a world-class city for bicycling. Minorities, women, and people of all ages are encouraged to apply.
