Last Call for Streetsblog Superheroes! Please Donate This Weekend

Big thanks to the hundreds of readers who stepped up over the last few weeks to support Streetsblog and Streetsfilms, your trusted source for transportation and livable streets news and advocacy. As we wrap up our spring pledge drive this weekend, we're closing in on our goal of 400 donors, but we need your help to reach this milestone. If you haven't already done so, please join the legion of Streetsblog Superheroes by making your tax-deductible contribution today.

Do you count on Streetsblog Chicago for hard-hitting coverage of local issues like the Illiana Tollway boondoggle, updates on ongoing initiatives like the Chicago bikeway network, and interviews with key players like transportation commissioner Rebekah Scheinfeld? If so, please help us keep the site going. Every single gift -- even $5 or $10 -- will help us continue to bring you the news and views you rely on.

"Streetsblog covers transportation issues that often get no other substantial coverage," one reader told us. If you feel the same way, now's the time to show your support. You can make a one-time gift or a recurring donation – think of it as a monthly subscription to the site — and you can earmark your contribution to specifically benefit Streetsblog Chicago.

Make a donation before midnight on June 1 and you'll be entered to win a Cleverhood rain cape in Ocean State Blue or a reflective CINCH belt from Vespertine:


Thanks again to everyone who has given some love to Streetsblog and Streetfilms. With your help, we'll meet our goal by Sunday night!

Roger that! Streetsblog SF editor Roger Rudick offers constructive criticism of Chicago’s downtown bike network

"There were blocks that felt very safe and very secure," he said. "But then you're immediately – voom! – disgorged into three lanes of moving traffic with no protection."
