For this video installment of Stories from the Field, we're excited to share a recent conversation with Liza Lutzker and Ben Gerhardstein, Coordinating Committee Members of Walk Bike Berkeley, a volunteer-run advocacy organization founded in 2018 by Berkeley residents. In this safety story, you'll learn how they are working to make walking and biking safer (and more fun!) through community engagement, participating in local planning processes, and leading local safety campaigns.
This story is part of the Stories from the Field Series, where we share stories of successes, lessons learned, best practices and tools for promoting safe active transportation throughout the state of California. It is a great opportunity to share your own experiences with others what works and to learn from one another how to encourage safe and active travel.
This Stories From the Field interview was conducted in collaboration with UC Berkeley SafeTREC. The opinions and perspectives expressed are those of the interviewee and not necessarily those of SafeTREC.
