2020 was LivableStreets’ 15th birthday! We wish we could have celebrated with you at our biggest party of the year, Tour de Streets, but that’s not what 2020 had in store for us.
Tour de Streets still happened; it just took place in your home, your backyard, and -- most importantly -- on your streets.
To celebrate our 15th anniversary, we launched a 15-day Tour Your Streets Campaign. It was an opportunity to celebrate LivableStreets’ accomplishments over the last 15 years, and to ensure we have the resources to fund the next 15 years of LivableStreets advocacy.
On each day of our 15-day campaign, we shared new ways to participate and #TourYourStreets. This campaign began on September 15th and ran through September 30th. Below you will find a short summary of the daily activities.
