More Walking and Biking: Thank You Surgeon General!

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm U.S. PIRG of U.S.PIRG, and I started a petition to Vivek Murthy, U.S. Surgeon General , which says:

Surgeon General Murthy,

Americans increasingly want more and better options for transportation beyond the personal car – Americans like me. Thank you for your recent Call to Action advocating for more and better walking and biking infrastructure. We need more champions like you fighting for a healthy America and the transportation options that will get us there. Please continue promoting more and better walking and biking options.


The nation's doctor has issued a rare Call to Action calling on cities and states across the country to invest in ways to make walking and biking safer, more attractive, and easier to use.

Less than half of Americans get enough daily physical activity to help ward off chronic health problems like obesity and cancer, but more "active transportation" options can be part of the solution.

By issuing this challenge to cities and states, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy recognizes that not only is this something more people want, but it's also something we need.

Thank the Surgeon General for his leadership on keeping America healthy.
