Residents are coming together to perform "walk audits" in their communities. When they did so in Birmingham, they helped improve street safety in the city.
"I think the creation of art is so important. It almost becomes a spiritual experience at times."
“I’m fiercely experimental in my art. My artwork is primarily me telling stories that I want to tell.”
Birmingham residents and visitors are benefiting from streets that are safer and more accessible for pedestrians, cyclists, and people of all ages and abilities, due to the efforts of AARP Alabama and our community partners.
Several organizations are working on boosting nutrition or improving outdoor spaces, aided by AARP Community Challenge grants. Among the winners:
Personal financial papers are gold to criminals looking to steal your identity or clean out your bank accounts.
With pedestrians facing dangers on roadways with no sidewalks, AARP Alabama is encouraging residents to conduct walk audits that evaluate the safety—or lack of it—in their communities. Audit findings are shared with elected officials and other local leaders.
AARP is committed to making communities more livable for people of all ages.
