CRC Flyer Competition

People sometimes feel a sense of bewilderment when it comes to engaging with such a massive opponet as the supporters of a 12-lane CRC.
"The people working to make this bridge are connected with power and influence. What can I do?"
Fear not citizen! For you are more powerful than you might have once perceived (unless you are overcome with delusions of grandeur, in which case just keep on reading and don't let me add to your existing feelings of power).

The simple act of giving a shit will overcome much. And if you care enough to have a conversation with someone then you can be influential. Pretend you dont have an opinion about the CRC... why not try asking those around you, "Hey do you know about the CRC? Can you tell me about it?"


But for those who DO care and DO have an opinion and DO want to share it we have this challenge.

Make a flier!

Portland (and the whole of the NW really) is supposed to be overrun with creative types that have more time and education than drive to use them. So here is the call to action: create a flier (an image with text or something, you dont really need me to tell you what a flier is right?) you would be willing to hand out to a friend or neighbor or stranger. Then post a link to it in the comments.

Lets democratize the process by encouraging more voices!

Fliers made in the next 48 hours (the afternoon of Wednesday, July 15th) will be printed and available this Sunday 7/19 at a great opportunity to meet some people, the Northeast Portland Sunday Parkway

You can come and walk, jog, skate, bike, or any other form of non motorized travel for hours! With no fear of being hit by a large hunk of metal moving at 30 mph right behind you! Fun! (or at least not terrifying!)

I will spend most of my time playing and enjoying some fine Bike Polo on the east side of Alberta Park. Come by, watch a game, have a conversation, enjoy the festivities.
