About Our Streets Minneapolis

 

Mission

Our Streets Minneapolis works for a city where biking, walking, and rolling are easy and comfortable for everyone. 

 

Vision

We envision a city where:

 
  • Biking, walking, and rolling are easy and joyful for people of all backgrounds and identities in all parts of Minneapolis;

  • Streets and trails are vibrant community spaces with people walking and biking year-round and at all times;

  • Kids and families feel safe and comfortable walking and biking to neighborhood schools, parks, and businesses;

  • Older adults and people with mobility challenges are healthy, independent, and connected with their communities through streets and sidewalks designed for them; and

  • Abundant biking and walking contributes to happy people, a healthy environment, and a strong economy.

 

 

Method

We believe in the power of people:

 
  • Our work is volunteer driven and community supported;

  • We use a community organizing approach to set and act on our local advocacy priorities to make streets places that put people first;

  • We depend on the passion and skills of hundreds of volunteers to make our work happen each year from our Board of Directors to the folks who volunteer at our Open Streets Minneapolis events.

  • As part of centering people in our work, we apply an equity lens to everything we do. Learn more about how we do that by reading our Equity Statement.

 

 

Formerly the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition

Our organization was founded in 2009 as the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition. In 2017 we changed our name to Our Streets Minneapolis. With this change, we affirmed our commitment to people walking and rolling, not just people biking.
