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. Our sidewalks, roadways and plazas account for the majority of all public space in the five boroughs, and are a precious resource to be shared and enjoyed by all.
We took the political world by storm in New York City's 2013 municipal elections, endorsing 21 candidates (rounds I, II, III, IV, V) in the September primary, 16 of whom were victorious, and an additional six in the general election (rounds VI, VII), five of whom also won. On the ground, we registered and turned out voters, and built grassroots support for Mayor Bill de Blasio's Vision Zero program to eliminate traffic deaths.
In 2014 StreetsPAC turned to Albany to work on safe and livable streets education and decisions that affect both New York City and the state. We released two rounds of endorsements for the 2014 NYS races. Meet our 2014 endorsees.
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; parking and toll reform; more thorough crash investigations; and better enforcement of traffic laws, especially through increased deployment of automated speed and red-light cameras.

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