Celebrate With Streetsblog and Streetfilms at TSTC’s Annual Benefit

tstc_benefit.jpgMark your calendars: The Tri-State Transportation Campaign is honoring Streetsblog and Streetfilms at its annual benefit next Thursday. We hope to see you there, so here’s our pitch. In addition to watching Aaron Naparstek and Clarence Eckerson share the stage with the other honoree, New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, you’ll be contributing to an exceedingly deserving organization.

The hardworking folks at Tri-State somehow manage to be everywhere in our huge metro region: pushing for safe streets in New Jersey, smart growth in Nassau, and BRT in Connecticut — I could go on. They also manage to write a top-notch advocacy blog and, in their downtime, take Cory Booker out to bike around Newark.

To support their excellent work, here’s what you need to know:

Tri-State Transportation Campaign Annual Benefit
Thursday, October 29, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.
