Complete Streets T-Shirt Making Party

A group of young people is getting together to promote Complete Streets for Spokane, and you're invited to join them. Even if you're not young anymore. Or young at heart. Really, it's okay.

The kids behind 'NextUp Spokane' (they're really young adults, I'm just feeling old today) are holding a t-shirt making event Friday, June 17 from 6-9:30pm at the 'Dirty Yeti' at 1607 W. Main Ave. in Peaceful Valley.

Complete streets is the idea that you should be able to use multiple modes of transportation on our streets and be safe doing so, whether you're an elderly person walking, someone using a wheelchair or a child trying to cross the street.

If you like that idea, bring your own shirt and use NextUp Spokane's screen prints, ink and other materials to make your own I heart Complete Streets shirt. They've also got snacks if that motivates you.
