Michael Kelley is the Director of Policy at BikeWalkKC, an advocacy organization based in Kansas City, Missouri. Their mission is to “redefine our streets as places for people to build a culture of active living.”

Michael sees biking and walking as tools that enable people to get where they need to go in a safe, affordable, independent manner. These active transportation options can improve economic resilience, health, and a sense of community in any town, and Michael is working towards that in Kansas City. He brings to the organization his background in addressing housing issues, helping businesses thrive, and supporting the arts, all of which now inform his interdisciplinary role of creating a more bike- and walk-friendly Kansas City.
