Date: Wednesday, August 19 Time: 6:00-7:00pm Location:Gresham City Hall, 1333 Northwest Eastman Parkway, Gresham, OR, United States - There's no place to park your bike at the grocery store. - Your kid can't bike to school because of one dangerous road crossing. - Your neighborhood association is fighting a bike-friendly project. The problem is clear. The solution might even be obvious to you but how do you get others on board? How do you get the problem solved? The Bicycle Transportation Alliance has been advocating for better safer streets since 1990. In this free one-hour clinic, a BTA advocate will share some of the lessons we've learned about how to get your voice heard -- how to get your community's problems solved. Topics covered include messaging, defining success, power mapping, identifying allies, and pressure vs. persuasion. This month’s Advocacy Clinic will be presented by Elizabeth Quiroz, BTA's advocate focused on East Portland Questions?
