Three days left to support LivableStreets in 2015


What a year! From the Comm Ave victory, to Mayor Walsh’s commitment to Vision Zero and the launch of the Emerald Network, we couldn’t have had such a successful 10th anniversary year without you!

To cap off our 10th Anniversary we set a goal to raise an additional $10,000 by the end of the year...and we blew through that goal, raising more than $12,000! However, we still need your support.

We are setting a new goal of raising $15,000 by the end of the year to help support some key projects in January. In the first few days of the New Year we’ll be working to make Beacon Street in Brookline safer, fighting for truck guard legislation at the State House and ramping up our efforts to transform the 1-90 Allston Interchange.

The New Year will bring new challenges and--with your support--new victories. Make an end of year donation today for more LivableStreets in 2016! Only $3,000 to go!

We're hiring


We are hiring for an Executive Assistant position to support our growing staff and programs and ensure LivableStreets' day-to-day operations run efficiently. 

This is an exciting time for LivableStreets and we are looking for a candidate who can help us maintain and improve our internal systems and be responsive to an ever-increasing demand for our work!

A surprise from Mayor Walsh at the 10-in-1 StreetTalk 

vzc2.jpgThank you to everyone who joined us for our annual StreetTalk 10-in-1! In addition to our inspiring speakers, Mayor Walsh surprised us with a birthday message and the release of the City of Boston’s Vision Zero Action Plan. Boston Transportation Commissioner Gina Fiandaca, with members of the Vision Zero Task Force and the Vision Zero Coalition also joined us for the announcement. 

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Action Plan, you can read the full report and learn more about the incredible work of the Massachusetts Vision Zero Coalition here!

We’ll be posting videos of all of the talks in the coming weeks. In the meantime you can watch Mayor Walsh’s message and check out our Facebook page to view photos from the event.

A special thanks our host The Old South Meeting House and our StreetTalk sponsor Lyft for helping make this our biggest and best 10-in-1 yet!
