Streetsblog and Streetfilms have launched their spring pledge drive with a goal is to raise $30,000 by June 1. Give to Streetsblog, give to Streefilms, or give to ‘em both. Your giving ensures that your online voice for livable, safe and complete streets stays heard within the public conversation. Thanks to previous support from readers:
- Streetsblog has produced in-depth coverage of NYPD’s traffic fatality investigations, exposing the shoddy underpinnings of the department’s victim-blaming crash reports. Your gift will help us sustain this reporting and hold elected officials to their promises to get NYPD to reform its ways.
- Streetfilms produced the highly acclaimed and groundbreaking Moving Beyond the Automobile series, which had nearly 150,000 views. This year we’d like to continue to break new ground in the transportation debate by making three new chapters in the Fixing the Great Mistake series. One of the films will focus directly on the drawbacks of the effect of surface parking on a city and the damage it does.
- Streetsblog and Streetfilms will be able to cover what promises to be the biggest livable streets story of the year: 10,000 bikes at 600 stations will be on the streets in July. We will report on the preparation, launch, and day-to-day use of North America’s largest public bike system. Don’t let Andrea Peyser get the last word.
You can also enter the drawing by signing up to make a recurring monthly gift of just $4 or more — think of it as a subscription to the fine reporting and commentary you read on Streetsblog. But wait, there’s more: give by April 30 and be also be eligible to win a one-year subscription to Yes! magazine.
Your support keeps Streetsblog and Streetfilms going. Please give and contribute to the high impact reporting and films that Streetsblog and Streetfilms produce.
