What a turn out yesterday! (Photo gallery here.) Thanks to all our partners (special thanks to members of the Latino Youth Media Institute, who showed us where residents cross the tracks!), and to the Springfield officials who took a strong stand on behalf of residents: City Councilors Zaida Luna, Amaad Rivera, Tim Allen, and José Tosado (who is council president, and a candidate for mayor). The tour was also covered by WRSI, WAMC (NPR Albany), Ch22 News, and ABC40.
Here’s the route map and short explanations of each tour stop (below). Take the tour virtually, get out and do it your yourself, or come do it with us again (we’ve already had several requests for a repeat). And you can download this two-page PDF to make your own color, two-sided, tri-fold tour brochures. And check back for more photos, video, etc. (New NYT article about Micky D’s and obesity here.)
