Go Human is a community engagement program with the goals of reducing traffic collisions in Southern California and encouraging people to walk and bike more. We hope to create safer and more connected communities by making resources available for engagement, education, information sharing, projects and events.

Go Human is funded by grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety, the California Active Transportation Program, the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee and from our sponsors.

100 Hours

From World-Famous Traffic to World-Renowned Solutions

The average LA driver now loses over 100 Hours every year trapped in traffic, making LA one of the most highly congested cities in the world. Angelenos agree: it’s time to get serious about solving our record-breaking traffic problems. The 100 Hours Campaign was launched to bring together solutions from around the world and start a real conversation about what it will take to turn traffic hot spots into models of mobility.


Earthquake Preparedness Initiative

The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), in partnership with the Dr. Lucy Jones Center for Science and Society, has launched a new initiative to help local cities and counties protect Southern California communities and economies from the disruption that a major earthquake would cause. The initiative kicked off with a series of regional seminars, led by Dr. Jones, for local civic leaders. The seminars reviewed the risks of a major regional earthquake and the most effective approaches for preparation, including strengthening infrastructure and reviewing building safety codes. The initiative will continue through 2017, with workshops that will give local leaders the tools necessary for building the resilience that keeps natural disasters from becoming catastrophes.
