We promote land use policies & activities that advance healthy communities,
positive economic outcomes & environmental benefits in Wisconsin.

“Some common themes run through the work of 1000 Friends, whether we’re promoting 21st century transportation options, protecting natural resources or helping to build healthy, sustainable communities and neighborhoods. We provide sensible, cost-effective and fact-based alternatives that help our state and local communities make wise and enduring decisions. Maybe that’s why we’ve become a go-to source when policymakers face tough choices about how to build systems and infrastructure that serve all citizens.” Bill Berry, Board Member
