    The Illinois Alliance to Prevent Obesity (IAPO) is a multi-sector coalition that works for equitable and just opportunities for Illinoisans to eat healthy and be physically active to optimize their health and well-being. IAPO will share policy/advocacy updates related to Activity-Friendly Routes and Everyday Destinations in this space:

    • Support implementation of The Illinois Bike Walk Education in Schools Act. The Illinois Bike Walk Education in Schools Act requires school boards to adopt policies for educating K-8 students about biking and walking safety. The Active Transportation Alliance has created a toolkit for residents and parents interested in advocating for the new law. This includes a review of the details of the bill, educational resources available to schools, and the steps you can take to work with your local school board to ensure your district is incorporating the act into school curriculum. Click here for the toolkit and sign up to be a school liaison in your community here!

     

    IAPO is convened and administered by the Illinois Public Health Institute.
