Safe Routes to School
Our hearts break for the Robb Elementary School community in Uvalde, Texas where 19 children and two teachers were murdered by a person with a gun. They break for the community of Buffalo, New York where parents, grandparents, children, friends, and neighbors were gunned down in the grocery store by a white supremacist. And they break for parents, caregivers, and communities all across the country where guns claim the lives of children and young people whose deaths do not even make headlines.
Passing Safe Routes to School policies may significantly increase the likelihood that Safe Routes to School programs are sustainable in the long-term. Below are resources to guide your Safe Routes to School program's policy implementation efforts.
