Celebrate October is National Walking Month by Joining Our WALKtober Challenge!

Who We Are

WALKSacramento is a nonprofit planning and advocacy organization that improves quality of life and health equity through community-centered policy and systems change in land use, transportation, and community development.  

What We Do

We work with communities throughout the Sacramento Region to advance policies that drive health equity, support community priorities through meaningful engagement, and deliver programs that encourage active travel for health, economic development, and environmental benefits.

Our Goals

Livable Communities and Equitable Development

Health, wealth, and access to opportunity are maximized through community centered investment, policy, and programs in support of healthy community design.

Multimodal Choice and Mobility Justice

Transportation systems prioritize active transportation and transit to achieve more balanced, equitable, and carbon-free communities.

Safe Streets for All

All streets are designed and operated to safely meet the needs of people of all abilities and modes. Roadway fatalities are eliminated and investment is prioritized in historically marginalized communities.

Community Empowerment and Advocacy

Residents and community based organizations develop and implement a vision for their community that improves quality of life and spurs ongoing civic engagement and empowerment.

Support Our Mission

Lack of human-scale infrastructure throughout the Sacramento Region coupled with overly aggressive drivers is a recipe for disaster. Everyone including both local government and individual roadway users must commit to making our streets safer. Your contribution helps ensure we continue to advocate for policy change, provide technical assistance, and develop strong active transportation programs for communities.

Let’s keep in touch.
