I am so excited about the weekend. I am preparing to present at the community rally and team effort that the Martha Gonzalez Memorial Committee has put together for this Saturday, May 15th at 11am at Kristoffer's Cafe at the corner of 18th and Halsted.
Martha Gonzalez, as you may remember from our previous blog entries was a resident of Pilsen who was killed by a hit-and-run driver on Tuesday October 13, 2009. This tragic event has galvanized her family and the wider community to work towards making the intersection of the incident, 18th and Halsted, a safer place for pedestrians and all residents.
This Saturday is a multi-layered community Team Effort that will:
There’s lots of good work to do. All volunteers are welcome and the media has been invited to attend.
Coffee and pastries will be provided at Kristoffer’s Café at 11:00am.
I hope to see you there!
