Join Us on October 26 and Support Media That Makes a Difference for NYC Streets

streetsball_2017

Please join Streetsblog and Streetfilms for our annual benefit, the Streets Ball, on October 26 at Current, right off the Hudson River Greenway at 18th Street. This is the biggest night of the year for our organization, when we celebrate progress and raise funds for the work ahead of us. Your support at the Streets Ball gives us the means to produce media that makes a difference for walking, biking, and transit on NYC streets.

This year we’ve got a fantastic group of honorees: Charles Komanoff, whose contributions to bike activism and the movement for sustainable transport in NYC could fill a book; Mujeres en Movimiento, whose courage and perseverance delivered safer walking and biking access to Flushing Meadows Corona Park for neighborhood families; and the Law Office of Vaccaro & White, who’ve literally elevated the status of pedestrians and cyclists in New York City law.

As always, we’ll have great food and drink at the Streets Ball and you’ll have great company. Tickets start at $300 and the proceeds, if I may say so, go to a great cause.

Right now, the opportunities for transformative change to NYC streets and transportation are abundant. The L train shutdown has generated momentum for precedent-setting street redesigns to prioritize transit and bicycling. Pressure is building for Governor Cuomo to deliver tangible reforms to turn around flagging subways and buses. And there’s simply more grassroots energy for better transit, biking, and walking all across the city, from the Bronx to Staten Island, than at any time I can remember.

Come celebrate with us on October 26 and help Streetsblog and Streetfilms broadcast that energy to the world.
