"The Street Project" Documentary Screening and Discussion @ Central

Join the Cranston Public Library and OneCranston Health Equity Zone Our Built Environment Initiative for a screening and discussion of the documentary The Street Project. Created by the multiple Emmy-winning team at Boyd Productions, The Street Project takes viewers across the globe in an uplifting narrative, from cycling-friendly meccas in Europe, to New York City and Phoenix, Arizona – one of the most dangerous cities in America for pedestrians – for a deep dive into how America views our streets and how they can be made safer.

“America’s streets started out as bicycle and pedestrian friendly, however, the advent of the car-culture changed everything,” said the film’s Director/Executive Producer Jennifer Boyd. “More recently, we have experienced a reawakening of sorts, due to the massive spike in fatalities, the pandemic lockdowns that forced our communities to rethink how they use their streets, as well as the passing of the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act which makes the safety of all users, including cyclists and pedestrians, a priority. We created The Street Project to raise awareness that cars, pedestrians, and cyclists can coexist, and that we need to examine our history so we can create a future with better alternatives.”
