Community outreach and community involvement is a key part of our mission. It is one of the main reasons why our Americorps VISTA Summer Associates are so important to our work.
Recently, JC Ramirez and Alexis Rodriguez, two of the associates, were out shooting photographs and capturing video footage all along Guadalupe street.
Guadalupe street will shortly go under reconstruction in a road diet in which its four lanes will be reduced to two. The aim of this project is to increase the walkability of Guadalupe street, improve ADA access and make it a safer street for pedestrians and cyclists.
Our Summer Associates were out capturing footage of the street before it goes under reconstruction and published the material on the website, Our Guadalupe, for community members to follow the project and use it an important resource for up to date information.
