Help Streetsblog Chicago resume its important work

Post image: 

During the past couple of years, Streetsblog Chicago has been an important voice in making Chicagoland a better place for biking, walking and transit. The web-based publication has been a great partner to Active Trans and others in the region who are working toward creating streets that welcome everyone.

Unfortunately, due to a funding shortfall, Streetsblog Chicago has suspended publication.

If you would like to see Streetsblog Chicago return to daily reporting on sustainable transportation and livable streets issues, please consider making a contribution to the Streetsblog Chicago Resurrection Fund.

Donations are not tax-deductible at this point, but all donors will receive an email stating that their money will be returned if daily publication of original articles has not resumed by April 8, three months from the start of the hiatus.

Contact John Greenfield at greenfieldjohn[at] or 312-560-3966 for more info about how your donation will be used.

Stay tuned for updates on the fundraising effort via the Streetsblog Chicago Facebook and Twitter accounts.
