Issues and Policy

Coordinated advocacy efforts will benefit all Americans through increased influence via strong, coherent, and coordinated messaging on legislation and policy.

 

Bringing together the collective force of American Trails members, partners, and allies in coordinated advocacy efforts will benefit all Americans through increased influence via strong, coherent, and coordinated messaging on legislation and policy. It’s anticipated that American Trails members will engage jointly in advocacy efforts before Congress and federal agencies to influence trail legislation, policy, and funding.

American Trails, through our Trails Move People (TMP) coalition, allows for robust engagement of diverse organizations across the trail user spectrum on a variety of topics and issues related to trails. Agreement on all issues may not be possible, but TMP will provide a forum for such discussions, and allow the trails community to speak loudly with a unified voice on the issues that resonate with the TMP coalition.
