StreetsPAC is a political action committee dedicated to improving the safety, mobility and livability of one of New York City’s greatest assets: its streets. The space between buildings, including sidewalks, roads and plazas, account for the majority of all public space in the five boroughs, and are a precious resource to be used and enjoyed by all.
Founded by a team of the city’s most committed advocates, StreetsPAC backs candidates who support the expansion of traffic-calming infrastructure such as neighborhood slow zones, pedestrian plazas, and bike lanes; increased and improved transit access for all New Yorkers; more thorough crash investigations; and better enforcement of traffic laws.
StreetsPAC endorsed 21 candidates (I, II, III, IV, V), for the September primary, 16 of whom were victorious. We're proud to have recently added six more candidates to our list of livable-streets champions, in two additional rounds of general-election endorsements (VI, VII). On the ground, we registered and turned out voters, and built grassroots support for Bill deBlasio's Vision Zero program to eliminate traffic deaths.
StreetsPAC is registered with the New York State Board of Elections and the New York City Campaign Finance Board.
