Monday: Meet & Greet with Carlina Rivera

Tomorrow – Monday, March 9th – please join us in the East Village for a special safe streets- and transportation-themed meet-and-greet event with Council Member Carlina Rivera, co-hosted by Brad Lander, Jessica Ramos, Jon Orcutt, Ya-Ting Liu and Tom DeVito.

It will be a great chance to talk bike lanes, busways, and transportation policy with one of the City Council's most dynamic young leaders, and to help Carlina jump-start her 2021 re-election effort. 

Carlina has been an outspoken advocate for safer streets and better public transit, authoring the legislation that now requires contractors to create and maintain temporary separated bike infrastructure when a protected lane is displaced by construction work. She's the prime sponsor of a bill that would create an Office of Active Transportation – NYC's very own "Bike Mayor" – and has been the de facto Bike Mayor of the 2nd Council District, which she gets around every day on her bicycle.

Carlina was also an early and vocal proponent of the 14th Street Busway, as well as one of the first Council Members to sign on to Speaker Corey Johnson's Streets Master Plan bill.

We enthusiastically endorsed Carlina's run for the CIty Council in 2017, and we're grateful for the commitment she's demonstrated to safer streets and better transit since taking office. Please join us Monday evening to hear from her directly, and to share your ideas about how we can work together to make New York CIty a world-class place for walking, biking and public transportation.

We'll have free hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar with happy-hour prices. Please let us know you're coming at [email protected]
