Connect the Crescent - Storygathering & Training
Thu, Mar 16, 2017
4:00 – 6:00 pm
Bike Easy Office
2100 O.C. Haley Blvd
Last month, we mapped out ways to grow the coalition to ‘Connect the Crescent’ with ‘Streets Built to Share’. Collecting and sharing people’s stories of biking New Orleans, reaching out to community leaders and local institutions, and good old fashioned grassroots outreach throughout the upcoming weeks and months will build community support for ensuring that biking and walking around our city is safe and equitable for all – no matter where we live, how much we earn, or how we choose to get around town.
This month, you’re invited to the Bike Easy office to get this campaign rolling.
Come ready to design and help create the Bike Easy Storybooth, the Bike Easy Biker Cam, and the #hashtags we’ll use to collect people’s best stories of biking around New Orleans! We’ll also train folks on how to petition supporters at public events and the right language to use. Once everyone is trained and ready to do outreach, folks can sign up to petition at upcoming events, sign up local businesses, and even take the Storybooth out to a public event! Let the good times roll!!
Look forward to seeing you there!
