Saturday Is a Big Day for Streetsblog

Saturday marks two important milestones for Los Angeles Streetsblog.  We put both in the “Week in Livable Streets Events” but wanted to highlight them for your consideration.

The first is another installment in the Streetsblog house party series.  Yes, we did get enough money to begin expanding the website with our “local bureau” model into South Los Angeles and to Boyle Heights, but that doesn’t cover many of our other expenses that we still need some help on before the end of the year.

So, Please join Joel Epstein, Karen Sarachik, Damien Newton, Councilman Bill Rosendahl, Friends 4 Expo Transit Founder Darrell Clarke and the Board of Los Angeles Streetsblog for a casual dinner reception in support of Los Angeles Streetsblog.  The event begins at 6:30 at Joel and Karen’s house (I’ll send you the address and transportation instructions to those that RSVP).  RSVP by emailing me: damien at streetsblog dot org.

Suggested contribution of $100 but even if you can’t donate or donate at that level, please attend to hear about the good work Los Angeles Streetsblog is doing to keep Angelenos abreast of critical developments in public transportation, biking and public space in Los Angeles.

All donations are tax deductible.  If you would prefer to donate online, you can do so at http://la.streetsblog.org/donate/.

Second, applications for our South L.A. and Boyle Heights writers are due on Saturday.  We’ve received a lot of great applications, but we’d love to hear from you.  You can read more about the positions at these links:  Boyle Heights and South L.A.
