Active Transportation NOW aims to win game-changing improvements for walking, biking, and public transit by building relationships with state assembly champions who will support legislation for multimodal transportation funding and reform. During the 2018 election, we highlighted four state legislative candidates who believe that making streets safer for people who walk, bike and take public transit will create healthy, sustainable and equitable communities. They all were elected to the 101st State Assembly.

State Senator Laura Fine won over 70% of the votes of her constituents in Evanston, Glenview, Wilmette, Winnetka, Skokie and Northfield.  As senator, she is a member of the Environment and Conservation Committee and will advocate for a Bike Walk Fund and the restoration of the public transit cuts.

State Representative Robyn Gabel won over 70% of the vote of her constituents in Evanston, Northbrook, Northfield, Wilmette, Winnetka and Glencoe. As chair of IL Green Legislative Caucus, Robyn  will advocate for a Bike Walk fund and the restoration of the public transit cuts.

State Representative Delia Ramirez was elected to her first term representing constituents in Humboldt Park, West Town, Ukrainian Village and Logan Square. She is fighting for a neighborhood agenda where active transportation is a priority. Delia  has over 1,000 members/supporters of Active Trans in her district.

State Representative Curtis J. Tarver was elected to his first term representing constituents in parts of Kenwood, Hyde Park, South Shore, South Chicago and Calumet Heights. Curtis will prioritize transportation equity ensuring that all residents have equal access to connect to jobs, education and health care.

Prior to the election, Active Transportation NOW sent questionnaires about biking, walking and public transit issues to candidates for Illinois State House and Senate in the Chicago region. Following are links to completed questionnaires we have received.
