The Week in Livable Streets Events
- Tuesday – North East L.A. Alliance will be hosting “Testimonios” – a flash mob procession and public performance commemorating the histories of displacement of peoples that has taken place on the land in and around L.A. Union Station. See Facebook event for more information.
- Wednesday – Mariachi Plaza will be converted into a creative lab where local artists will be paired with “MacArturos” across a spectrum of disciplines to create instant workshops with local community member participation. Among the projects expected to unfold organically will be a large community altar with tributes to families that have been displaced due to rising rents or businesses that no longer exist. Get the details for this 6 p.m. event, here.

- Sunday – It’s “Car-Free Day” in cities across the world. While we don’t know of any celebrations city-wide, The Valley celebrates every year with some car-free events. This year’s Car Free SFV includes tours of the Orange Line on bike or (presumably) bus. Can’t make the SFV? You can celebrate by not driving a car. Novel! Details.
