MilWALKee Walks (MKE Walks) is dedicated to promoting walking and pedestrian infrastructure in Milwaukee. We train and mobilize Milwaukeeans to advocate for safe, accessible, and equitable walking environments in neighborhoods across Milwaukee. We aim to empower those most directly impacted by traffic collisions and educate local policymakers concerning the rights and needs of pedestrians of all abilities.

Our Vision

is a pedestrian advocacy program housed 
within the Wisconsin Bike Fed.

MKE Walks envisions Milwaukee as
a dynamic city in which the pedestrian experience is embraced as a convenient and safe transportation option, great for exercise or fun.

We envision all residents and visitors of all ages, ethnicities, incomes, and abilities can walk or move safely through Milwaukee neighborhoods.

Our Team

Marybeth McGinnis

MKE Walks Program Manager


In her previous home of Madison, WI, Marybeth was involved in safe streets advocacy and community organizing. She’s excited to be a part of making Milwaukee safer for everyone who walks and rolls. While she loves to bike camp and get around on two wheels, you can mostly catch her getting around Milwaukee on an MCTS bus or by foot. Want to talk walking and safety in your neighborhood? Reach out and let’s chat!

Over the past ten years, he has actively organized initiatives aimed at decreasing violence and making a positive impact on the lives of children in the Milwaukee area.

He will be working on education and developing partnerships to reduce pedestrian fatalities and crashes in some of our most vulnerable communities in Milwaukee.
