raised by 1 people
This is an exciting year, as LivableStreets is celebrating their sweet 16! Instead of getting their driver’s license, they’re continuing to focus on working towards a multi-modal future -- and they need our support to do that!
Over the past year, LivableStreets has tackled so much. From bringing on the Great Neighborhoods housing program to organizing several new coalitions, such as the Transit is Essential Coalition, which began as a way to fight MBTA service cuts, their work continues to expand to affect the different factors that help make our streets "livable". Our support will be vital in helping LivableStreets continue their important work.
And this year, LivableStreets is hosting Tour de Streets: Winter Edition! Throughout the month of December, there will be opportunities to explore and celebrate everything our streets have to offer in the winter months. Check out their website for an ever growing list of events and activities to participate in -- and consider hosting your own!
During this past year, as part of the LivableStreets team, I was able to thoroughly work on the Gender and Mobility Initiative and learn more about how our different gender identities determine how we move throughout the city. To know more about the project, go check the Sasaki Foundation report.
I ask you to support this and other LivableStreets efforts to have more equitable streets by donating today.
As I'm in Chile, I can't invite you to tag along with me on a winter hike, but I would encourage you to go for a winter walk on my behalf! I'm sharing a picture of my cats on their last winter walk for inspiration!
Additionally, please join me in hearing this 99% invisible podcast episode - Invisible women where Caroline Criado Perez explains how snow plowing policies can be (or not) sexists! Or check out this short film Sustainable Gender Equality - a film about gender mainstreaming in practice where they explain a similar idea.
