Active Streets | Safe Streets
According to the City of Pasadena and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, traffic crashes are the number one cause of premature death in the County for children aged 5-14. Vehicle collisions are also the number two cause of premature death for children 1-4, young adults 15-24, and adults 25-44.
Day One is dedicated to creating safe, livable streets in Pasadena. For seven years, we have worked on projects encouraging and supporting the community to drive less and walk, bike, take transit, and share rides more. Check out all of our current and previous projects below.

Walking Tour of the African American History of Pasadena
Originally conceived by the NAACP Pasadena Branch as a bus tour, this version, as a self-guided walking tour, was co-created by the Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition (PasCSC) and the NAACP for “Walktober 2020.” Walktober is an annual event organized and promoted by PasCSC to get people walking in Pasadena. In February 2021, Day One, received a grant from America Walks to add voice recordings to this tour, create an educational toolkit, add quiz questions to the tour, and create a short promotional video. Our goal is to make the walking tour and toolkit an ongoing resource for the Pasadena community and students.
Everyone is a pedestrian at some point. Pasadena Walks! is a project to develop a Pedestrian Plan for our city. Since January 2021, Day One has supported Toole Design and the City of Pasadena Department of Transportation in identifying barriers to walking and options for improvement. As proud members of the project team, we encourage Pasadena Community Members to visit the Pasadena Walks webpage for more information and to sign up for the project updates email list. Help us make Pasadena a better, safer, healthier place for walking.
