CicLAvia is a 501(c)3 non-profit that catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation, and good health through open street events. At each event, we remove cars from miles of streets in LA County and open them up for people to walk, skate, bike, play, and explore. As part of our effort to inform the community of our event(s) and reduce any negative impact of the street closures on the residents and businesses along our routes, we conduct thorough and extensive door-to-door outreach for each event.
