Celebrate Complete Streets at TSTC’s Annual Benefit
The passage of New York’s complete streets law was one of the year’s biggest victories for safe and sustainable transportation. At its annual benefit next Thursday, Tri-State Transportation Campaign will celebrate getting the through Albany and honor three pivotal figures in that fight: Sen. Charles Fuschillo, the bill’s sponsor; Sandi Vega, whose daughter Brittany was killed while crossing Long Island’s Sunrise Highway and who became a tireless advocate for complete streets; and the AARP. Also speaking will be special guest Janette Sadik-Khan.
We’ll be there next Thursday and hope you will too. Tri-State is out there fighting for sustainable transportation options across the region — advocating for a highway teardown in New Haven, protecting LI Bus riders from fare hikes and service cuts, and helping to build transit-oriented communities around NJ Transit lines.
To help support Tri-State’s work, here’s where to go:
Tri-State Transportation Campaign Annual Benefit
