The deadline has been extended! We have until June 7 to collect signatures to hold LA leadership accountable. Mobility Plan 2035 has plans for added bike infrastructure, but only about 3% has been implemented and we are 7 years into the plan. We must add a ballot measure to increase the work being done to create safer, healthier streets for LA.
