Tucson Families–tomorrow you can help make Tucson more walkable!

This is our last chance at funding a walkable region!
For the last three years, Living Streets Alliance, along with a coalition of over 30 neighborhoods, organizations, and businesses, has worked on a Pedestrian Safety & Comfort campaign to address the need for better walking conditions in the greater Tucson region. Tomorrow morning represents a major opportunity to do just that; the Pima County Bond Advisory Committee will make their final recommendation on whether or not to include $25 million in pedestrian improvements in the next bond election.

YOUR presence will affect their decision!

Help us pack the room to show that there’s broad community support for a walkable region. We’ll have ample, free bike parking available and provide you with a neon pedestrian pin to wear in show of support as you come in the door.

All you have to do is show up! (See details below.) Or, if you feel compelled, you can also fill out a speaker card as you enter the meeting and have the chance to speak directly to the committee for one minute during the “call to audience”.

To find out more about what’s being proposed, visit our Pedestrian Safety & Comfort Bond Proposal page. Meantime, please bring your friends, family, coworkers and help us spread the word via our Facebook event page.

This opportunity will not present itself again
for decades.

Let’s not miss our chance to create the walkable region that we want now! Thank you in advance for your support and resolve to create a community that’s safe and accessible for everyone. We’ll see you tomorrow morning, bright and early!

Prepare for the Procession of Little Angels

Free costuming workshops for kids and their families to help prepare for this year’s Procession of Little Angels! Our team of sewing experts will lend you a hand with your costume creation. Bring your own fabric and/or sort through our pile of lengths and remnants (also free, while supplies last).

During the costuming workshops, children are encouraged to develop their own fantasy persona for the Little Angels festival. The inspiration for this persona could be anything magical, fantastic or otherworldly from out of the realm of the mythic imagination, as opposed to that of pop culture and product. It could also be an animal that was a pet once loved and lost, or even a family member or friend who’s passed on.

There will be two special wire and fabric wing-making classes on Sunday, October 19 and Sunday, November 2. $15 materials fee.

Every Sunday and Tuesday between October 12 and November 5.

Sundays 1:30-4:30 pm, Tuesdays 6-9 pm.

Free to attend, but donations to the All Souls Procession Weekend always welcome and gratefully accepted.
