Support Your Online Voice for Livable Streets: Give to Streetsblog
Hardly a day goes by without news of another American city getting serious about a new bike-share system, transit boulevard, or highway teardown. Cities are grappling with how to move beyond the 1950s-era cars-first mentality, and the opportunities for change are palpable.
It’s also unusual to go a day without seeing some news report claiming the latest bus improvement has ruined the neighborhood or blaming high unemployment on bike lanes. Change comes hard, and misinformation is everywhere.
Streetsblog counters misinformation with high-impact reporting and analysis. And we can’t do it without your help.
Help us raise $25,000 between now and December 31 by making a donation of $50, $100, $250 or more today.
From telling the political story behind the Prospect Park West bike lane fight in Brooklyn to unpacking the implications of federal transportation policy, no one combats falsehoods or connects the dots like Streetsblog.
A one-time or monthly gift will support Streetsblog’s important coverage in 2012:
- Fully documenting the planning, implementation and use of the largest public bike system in America as NYC DOT and Alta Planning bring bike-share to fruition.
- Holding Ray Kelly and the NYPD accountable for failing to keep pedestrians and cyclists safe on city streets.
- Making the case for lawmakers to stop shortchanging transit and fully invest in our subways and buses.
A lot of the media outlets that scapegoat livable streets improvements rely on auto industry advertising to bring you the news. Streetsblog relies on your support. Make a tax-deductible year-end contribution today and help us bring you another year of news and commentary about the developments that shape our neighborhoods, cities, and regions.
