L.A. Streetsblog Fundraiser at LAEV Friday April 9th

If you live, breathe, walk, bike and/or work in greater Los Angeles, then you should read Los Angeles Streetsblog. It’s an invaluable resource on the latest news about green transportation and urban livability. It’s part of a larger network that makes positive change in cities throughout the nation. Take for example, this Streetfilm about Los Angeles Eco-Village, or this one on L.A.’s Bike Wrenching Co-ops (including the Bike Kitchen, which got its start at LAEV.)

Streetsblog coming up in two weeks – Friday April 9th 2010 to be exact. There are lots of details here; you can rsvp via facebook here – or just plan to show up. It’s a suggested donation $25, but it’s really pay-what-you-feel-moved-to.
