Adams Morgan Community Center at the Line Hotel


WABA is hosting a documentary screening of The Street Project at the Adams Morgan Community Center in the Line Hotel. The Street Project documentary highlights the global, citizen-led fight to make our streets safer. 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. Watch the trailer here.

Four years in the making, The Street Project looks at how we got here, including the history of street use and how it has changed, what makes effective street design, how the automobile changed the way we use our streets, the misguided use of victim blaming, the impact of zoning laws on street transportation, and much more. 

The film will be followed by a guided reflection discussion and conversation about safe street efforts in D.C.  

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
