The Street Project - One Night Only
Worldwide, more than a million people die in traffic-related crashes each year. Half of those deaths are pedestrians and cyclists. The Street Project is an inspiring story about a massive movement across the US and around the world to reclaim our largest public spaces, our streets.
Film showing at 7pm followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Jennifer Boyd.
Proceeds from this event will go towards the youth programs of the Center for Latino Progress.
This event is in partnership with Transport Hartford Academy at the Center for Latino Progress.
