PCC welcomes our new Community Engagement Manager!
We are thrilled to welcome Joanne Burkett as our new Community Engagement Manager! Joanne will lead our Bike, Walk, Trails Summit late Spring 2023, in addition to helping our Livable Streets Academy and managing citizen and donor engagement activities.

Joanne has been a cyclist since her husband Alan gave her a tandem bike for law school graduation. In 2016 she and a friend started a local cycling group (WeCycle) in Greenwood, South Carolina, primarily for women and beginning / rehab / returning cyclists. She represented the biking community in her local Wholespire (formerly Eat Smart Move More) coalition and was appointed to the Greenwood County Transportation Committee in 2021.  Joanne has worked as an attorney and in philanthropy, grants management, and fundraising. She received her undergraduate degree from Columbia College and her law degree from USC. A native of Seneca, SC, she is passionate about helping people thrive by building on the strengths of connection, community and resilience often found in small towns. “Biking and walking get us outside where it’s easier to become more social, healthy, and aware of the beauty of SC and also the challenges of safety and equity. I am excited to join the PCC’s remarkable efforts to engage more people in creating an even better South Carolina.”
Tell USDOT to Measure GHG Emissions From Transportation!
Are you convinced biking and walking can make our air cleaner? Then you'll want to submit a comment the USDOT, as they consider requiring state DOT's (like SCDOT) report their greenhouse gases. Key is this will link DOT's with air quality efforts. Submit comment here! The Natural Resources Defense Council even developed a handy template letter you can add to, modify, or submit as is.
People for Bikes want to help your city advance a bike project!
People For Bikes would like to track priority projects and help where they can. Use this form to tell them about bicycle projects that are top priorities for funding and construction in your region. These can be corridor projects or off-road trails or paths that will result in the creation of an all ages and abilities facility.

If you have any questions about this form, please email Martina Haggerty, Senior Director of Local Innovation.

Then a truck hit his bike mirror. What was known and felt became lived experience.
