A Film By Jennifer Boyd
Worldwide, 1.35 million people die in traffic-related crashes each year. Half of those deaths are pedestrians and cyclists. THE STREET PROJECT is a film about the massive movement across the world to reclaim our largest public spaces, our streets.
For Dulcie Canton, stopping vehicular violence in New York City has become a life mission. Both Dulcie and her mother were victims of hit-and-run crashes on separate occasions, 10 years apart - Dulcie as a cyclist, her mother as a pedestrian.
For Stacey Champion, inaction at the city council level has led to her fight for change. Five pedestrians were hit by cars over the past 6 months at her neighborhood crosswalk. While deaths soar across the city, little has been done to address the pedestrian death toll.
You can join the fight, too, by supporting THE STREET PROJECT’s Impact Campaign!
