Pulling together a broad coalition of stakeholders, Jeff Rosenblum co-founded LivableStreets Alliance almost two years ago. The goal? Safer streets for pedestrians, bicyclists, and persons with disabilities. World-class transit. And an educated and inspired citizenry, empowered to demand better transportation.

Though very young, LivableStreets Alliance has already had a profound impact on the regional transportation dialog. The crux of our success has been bringing people together-- we work with the highest level officials at MassHighway, DCR, MBTA, and cities/ towns; businesses and institutions; diverse advocacy groups; and at the grassroots neighborhood level.

Come hear Jeff talk about the trends in urban transportation around the country and world, and how LivableStreets Alliance is making change happen in Boston.
