Hi everyone,

Tonight we again reunite our Eastlake and Westlake advocacy to fight the super yachts that are crushing the safety of people walking and biking. It’s time to capsize their outsized self-grandeur, shame ’em and get the lawsuit withdrawn or dismissed. And we’ve gotta keep up the fight to make Eastlake a great neighborhood, safe for people walking and biking to shops and restaurants.

Come to tonight’s Connect Lake Union meeting:  Tuesday, July 7, 6-7:30 p.m. Miir on Stone Way, 3400 Stone Way N (in the Brooks Building)  RSVP Here

Let’s put our collective brainpower together to come up actions showing that we are committed to building the protected bike lane on Westlake–the collaborative effort of many, many people over the past years–super-yachts or NOT!
