Feet First Philly is Philadelphia’s pedestrian advocacy group and a project of the Clean Air Council. Feet First Philly raises awareness of issues facing pedestrians in the City of Philadelphia including improving the pedestrian environment, protecting the rights of pedestrians, and encouraging walking as a mode of transportation, as well as for exercise and recreation.
Feet First Philly leads multiple advocacy projects including the #NotaParkingSpot campaign on Twitter. The campaign calls for better enforcement around parking on sidewalks and crosswalks, and empowers pedestrians to document illegal parking in their neighborhood. Because it leads to unsafe crossing of intersections and forces pedestrians into traffic, parking illegally can end in serious injury and even loss of life. Feet First Philly’s goal is to make Philadelphia’s streets safe and accessible for everyone.
Feet First Philly also leads organized walks, keeps a monthly walking calendar, conducts walk audits, and is a member of the Vision Zero Alliance, working to end traffic deaths in Philadelphia.
