After a three year hiatus, 10-in-1 LivableStreets’ annual StreetTalk is back in person and we can’t wait to see you! Returning to the Old South Meeting House, ten speakers will take the stage on ten different topics in one location to talk about issues regarding transit advocacy, climate justice, protecting our greenways, equitable housing + land use policies, and more!
