Streetfilms and Streetsblog are the political mobilizer for the Livable Streets movement. They are part of a growing coalition of individuals and organizations in cities around the world working to transform our cities by reducing dependence on private automobiles and improving conditions for cyclists, pedestrians and transit riders. They have picked the anniversary of Philadelphia's Bike Share movement to showcase their videos on bike-sharing and livable streets.
