Em Friedenberg joined Transportation Alternatives, NYC’s leading walking, biking and public transit advocacy group, in 2019. Em has an academic background in design and urban planning, and is fascinated by the impact a city can have on its residents' lives. She became interested in transportation after studying bicycle infrastructure in Eugene, OR, and then became thoroughly spoiled while living in Copenhagen, Denmark. The ease of having so many safe and convenient modes of transportation convinced her to work to bring the same to the United States. Em currently lives in Brooklyn, and walks, bikes, or takes public transit daily.
