Join CNU, experts in highway removal and surface street conversion, and activists around the country for a lively conversation on January 27, 2012 at 1:00 PM CST. Three speakers will briefly present key lessons learned in highway removal campaigns across the country, including how to shift political strategy, define elements of a success campaign, and better engage transportation professionals in talking about highway alternatives.  

This educational and networking session is for grassroots organizers and professionals working on highway-to-boulevard conversions. The goal of the training is to educate, motivate, and connect with grassroots organizers and professionals working on urban freeway removal.  You can register for this event here:

Speakers include: John Norquist, CEO and President of CNU; Lucy Gibson, Smart Mobility, Inc.; Cary Moon, People's Waterfront Coalition of Seattle, and Peter Park, Manager of Community Planning with the City of Denver. Speakers will discuss key lessons learned from recent highway conversions across the country and will take questions from the audience after their presentations.
