Issue #106 - August 2016

A note from Stacy Thompson: I'm excited to be stepping into my new role as LivableStreets' Executive Director as so many great things are happening within LivableStreets and our larger community (check out our full newsletter below for updates on some great events and a big win!) At the same time, for every victory there are also tragedies that remind us we are a long way from achieving our vision of a Metro Boston where every street is a safe and vibrant public space and our transportation system is convenient, affordable and accessible for everyone. That is why an anonymous donor is offering a matching donation of up to $10,000 for any contribution made to Tour de Streets within the next ten days.  That means if you donate $100, our donor will match that with another $100. If you are considering participating in Tour de Streets as a rider or walker, now is the time to register and kick-start your fundraising efforts. Tour de Streets began as a memorial ride for Bob Zeeb who tragically passed away as the result of a crash that occurred when he was riding his bike.  Bob is unfortunately one of many people who’ve been injured or lost their lives as a result of unsafe streets. LivableStreets is committed to transforming our streets and we won’t stop until we have achieved our vision. We have 10 days to raise $10,000. Join me. Donate and double your impact today. From all of us at LivableStreets, thank you for your continued support. -Stacy In this issue: We're hiring! Community Engagement Manager Join our Advocacy Committee for a field trip tonight!
