StreetsPAC is a political action committee dedicated to improving the safety, mobility and livability of one of New York City’s greatest assets: its streets. The space between buildings, including sidewalks, roads and plazas, account for the majority of all public space in the five boroughs, and are a precious resource to be used and enjoyed by all.

Vision Zero Founded by a team of the city’s most committed advocates, StreetsPAC backs candidates who support the expansion of traffic-calming infrastructure such as neighborhood slow zones, pedestrian plazas, and bike lanes; increased and improved transit access for all New Yorkers; more thorough crash investigations; and better enforcement of traffic laws.

In 2014 we are turning to Albany. Beginning work for safe and livable streets education and decisions that have effect in both NYC and across the state, we have released our first round of state level endorsements

In the NYC elections in 2013, StreetsPAC endorsed 21 candidates (IIIIIIIVV), for the September primary, 16 of whom were victorious, and six more in the general election (VIVII) with five victories. On the ground, we registered and turned out voters, and built grassroots support for Bill deBlasio's Vision Zero program to eliminate traffic deaths. 

StreetsPAC is registered with the New York State Board of Elections and the New York City Campaign Finance Board.
