      Hello all,

      I'm very excited that so much energy is focusing
      on the concept of car-free cities. I consider
      Crawford's new book a landmark text. I'll post
      that next.

      For now, the call for a Global Car Free day has
      blossomed into an entire Car Free Month in the
      San Francisco Bay Area (USA). Several of the
      events are international, however, and the
      concept could certainly be expanded beyond
      San Francisco.

      This concept is NOT limited solely to those
      who do not drive, but to ANYONE who supports
      car free living in general.

      Please look at this idea and consider its
      possibilities!

      everyone who cares about the right to live car-free
      has a stake in this and should be encouraged
      to participate.

      Note also that these events are not necessarily
      supported or organized by the BCLU.

      Help needed in every way. Please take initiative and
