Saturday night was another fantastic fundraiser for Streetsblog Los Angeles. A special thanks to Joel Epstein for his tireless efforts to promote and raise funds for Streetsblog and Councilmember Mike Bonin for joining us to celebrate the career of his transportation deputy Paul Backstrom.

The crowd featured everyone from So.CA.TA and Transit Coalition executives to Biking in L.A. Author Ted Rogers, to professional journalists, to the writing staff of Santa Monica Next, to LADOT executives. It was a great crowd for a great event.

Look for details on our upcoming events, soon.
