It’s been a busy summer for Street Ambassadors!
LivableStreets is on the Southwest Corridor Park Action Plan team. For two weeks in August, we deployed Street Ambassadors to collect surveys about people’s experience using the Southwest Corridor Park. Each day of the deployment, Street Ambassadors were stationed at a different section of the Southwest Corridor to collect feedback across neighborhoods. We loved hearing from park users and gathering important feedback about the project. Learn more about the Southwest Corridor Park Action Plan here.

Thanks for hanging out with us at Dot Ave Open Streets!
Thanks to all those who came to visit our table at the Dorchester Avenue Open Streets event on Sunday, September 17th! We loved chatting with Dorchester residents about the DOT Greenway project and gardening and coloring with kids.
Tour de Streets was a rollicking good time!
Thank you to everyone who helped make our event a success! We had such a wonderful time walking, biking, and partying with our entire LivableStreets community on Saturday, September 9th. Although the forecast was gloomy, not a drop of rain fell until well after our celebrations. We returned from our walks and bike rides to enjoy our fill of delicious empanadas, hot dogs, ice cream, and celebrate LivableStreets' accomplishments!
Check out photos from the event here by our amazing event photographer Selmon Rafey and staff photographer Maha Aslam!
As an added bonus, the event was a huge fundraising success: we raised over $80,000, beating our original goal of $60,000 and our challenge goal of $75,000! Our fundraising page closes on September 30th at 11:59PM, so you have until then to make last-minute donations.
