Advocacy

Changing the status quo

From City Hall to the State Capitol, we’ve spent decades protecting millions of dollars in funding for walking, bicycling, and transit, and fought for new policies and infrastructure in communities where they’re needed.

 

As bold, effective advocates, Move Minnesota is building an active grassroots base, finding common ground in shared values, and rallying people around the radical idea that it’s good to have options.

We help our fellow Minnesotans tell the stories of how transportation influences their lives and the future of our region. Together, our voices are a powerful challenge to the status quo, and a demand that Minnesota does better for all of us.

Key Initiatives

  • Transportation Forward

    Move Minnesota leads a statewide coalition of over 50 partner organizations and thousands of supporters calling on the legislature to increase funding for bus, rail, bicycling, and walking, along with keeping roads and bridges in good repair. Together, we are building and mobilizing broad support for new investments in transportation options to improve mobility, economic vitality, and quality of life in communities across Minnesota.

  • Women On Bikes

    Through our Women on Bikes programming, Move Minnesota makes biking accessible, visible, and fun. With a focus on Saint Paul, we engage new riders and build local bike advocates through community events, trainings, and monthly advocacy rides during the warm-weather biking season.

    Women on Bikes advocates have been instrumental in successfully pushing for the creation and implementation of Saint Paul’s first-ever bike plan. We continue to mobilize to shape and support local projects–especially in areas that have been chronically underserved–and encourage the city and county to implement equitable public input processes.

  • Advancing Shared Mobility

    Move Minnesota is at the forefront of efforts to increase innovative, shared transportation options in the Twin Cities metro. We recently collaborated with national and local partners on an action plan to dramatically improve mobility, and as a result, take 50,000 cars off the road by 2027. The benefits for household budgets and greenhouse gas reduction could be huge. We now co-lead the region’s Shared Mobility Collaborative, spearheading next steps to put that plan in motion.
