For a WI Where People in ALL Communities Can Walk, Bike and Be Active
WISCONSIN ACTIVE COMMUNITIES ALLIANCE
The Wisconsin Active Communities Alliance sees every community’s potential to create vibrant places where people can easily walk, ride a bike, and be active. We believe that active places are the building blocks for healthy, safe, fair, and economically thriving communities that connect people to a better quality of life. We bring communities together to help make it happen!

The Wisconsin Active Communities Alliance - "WACA" for short - is made up of over 100 local coalition leaders and champions across Wisconsin. We're all working to make our communities better places to walk, bike, and be active. Our members' dedication and expertise helps fuel change in communities and in Wisconsin's statewide active communities movement.
HOW CAN WACA BENEFIT YOU?
A group of 8 local leaders representing regions all across Wisconsin came together in 2012 through the Healthy Wisconsin Leadership Institute. They shared a desire to learn what was working best in each others' communities, and to amplify local priorities within Wisconsin’s statewide Active Communities movement. Together, they formed the Wisconsin Active Communities Alliance.
Today's Core Leadership Team members contribute their passion, experience and relationships to ensure that our alliance advances local and state-level change, creating more places to walk, bike and be active in Wisconsin.
