Save the date — our annual benefit, The Streets Ball, is happening October 23 and tickets are on sale now, starting at just $50 ($25 for students). The Streets Ball is a great time to connect with other New Yorkers who care about livable streets, mark this year’s advocacy successes, and support the work we do here at Streetsblog and Streetfilms so we can keep on making powerful media in 2015.
We’ll be honoring former NYC DOT policy director Jon Orcutt and Families For Safe Streets. Orcutt’s career spans advocacy and government, and he played a leading role in setting the agenda for street reforms under both Janette Sadik-Khan and Polly Trottenberg at NYC DOT. Families For Safe Streets is a powerful new force at City Hall and Albany, whose message helped pass multiple pieces of legislation this year, including the new 25 mph speed limit.
Come join us in recognizing their contributions to New York City streets on October 23. We’ll have great food from Kickshaw Cookery, live music, beer and wine, all in a fantastic space — the Invisible Dog, right off the Bergen Street stop on the F and G trains. Our event team has put together a wonderful evening and on behalf of the Streetsblog and Streetfilms crew, we’d love to see you there!
