Washington, DC

From a press release:

“Safe streets and climate activists throughout DC will close multiple streets to cars on Monday to give pedestrians and bicyclists room to exercise while remaining physically distant. Along with several DC grassroots organizations, the activists will use orange cones and other obstacles to close roads or lanes of traffic to nonresident vehicle traffic. This direct action builds on the #WidenDCSidewalks demonstrations that began in early April. Both movements aim to convince Mayor Muriel Bowser and DC Council Chair Phil Mendelson to immediately open DC streets to people walking, biking, and scooting.

Closures include: A St NE and A St SE, Oleans Place NE, Oates St NE, CHurch St NW, Linden St NE, Wylie St NE, 9th St NW, Upshire St NW, N St SW, Kansas Ave NW, Shepherd, NW, Taylor St. NW, Mozart and Fuller St NW, Butternut St NW, Euclid and Belmont St NW, Otis Pl NW, E St NE, Champlain St NW.

The group will be documenting their action on social media using the hashtag #DCStreets4People and #ArminArm. Closures are expected to last throughout the day.”
