Walk Don’t Destroy 2
Park Slope Neighbors has put together a team and will be walking to raise funds for the legal fight against the proposed "Atlantic Yards" project. Join as a walker or to pitch in by contributing funds.
The Walkathon is scheduled for Saturday, October 21st, and will kick off at 12 noon at the Prospect Park Bandshell. The two-mile walk route will wind through Prospect Park, returning to the Bandshell for an afternoon of free music, fun activities for kids, food and more.
There’s a strong possibility that the fight to stop or significantly alter the proposed "Atlantic Yards" will come down to a battle in the courts. The legal case against the use of eminent domain and the flimsiness of the environmental review process is strong, but it takes money to field a top-notch legal team, and that’s where this Walkathon comes in. Raising money and awareness is vital to the effort.
Registering for the Walkathon is easy. Just go to http://www.dddb.net/walkathon, click on REGISTER HERE, then JOIN A TEAM, and select "Park Slope Neighbors" from the pull-down menu. Then follow the remaining steps to complete your registration. It all takes less than five minutes.
