WHAT WE'RE ABOUT
The Street Trust works in classrooms, on the streets, in city hall and the state legislature encouraging and advocating for safe and convenient walking, biking, and transit options.
Our hearts break for George Floyd, his family, friends, and the Black community. We stand with Breonna Taylor and her community, and Ahmaud Arbery and his. Existing safely in public spaces as a Black person is a transportation issue and, more importantly, a human right.
When you participate in the Challenge, you do more than reduce your environmental footprint; you will also burn calories, reduce stress, and build muscle. Even when we ride alone, the Bike More Challenge brings people together to be part of the movement for safe streets and affordable transportation options.
Encouraged by May’s overwhelming voter approval to extend FIxing Our Streets in Portland and passage of a regional homeless services measure, the Portland-area regional government, Metro, continues to advance a transportation measure to the November ballot. The measure would fund crucial safety and transit investments over the next 20 years.
Transit agencies across the country are in crisis, as ridership has fallen dramatically and the future of transit is unclear. What hasn’t changed is that public transit continues to be a lifeline, especially for our Black, brown and low-income community members that rely on public transit.
This has been an unusual and challenging year that has forced difficult changes to business as usual. The Street Trust seeks to recognize people and organizations who have contributed to community resilience in a time of upheaval.
At The Street Trust, we are paying close attention to changing conditions of what it’s like to get around, and pivoting to address the most pressing transportation needs in our community. We are humbled by our community’s resilience during this time and grateful to be a part of it.
