Celebrating Yesterday's Freeway Fighters at the Reel Work Labor Film Festival

8PM: Celebrating the Freeway Fighters who defeated the Santa Cruz Freeway (’67-’74) and the Highway 1 tax (2004)

In the late 60's/early 70's citizens stopped state plans to run a freeway through Santa Cruz to the north coast. In 2004, county voters decisively defeated a highway tax. Celia and Peter Scott, Paul Elerick, Debbie Bulger, Bill Malone, and Bruce Van Allen led these volunteer efforts.

Admission by voluntary donation to benefit the CFST/Sierra Club lawsuit against Caltrans regarding Hwy 1 auxiliary lanes in Aptos. Donate online: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/yesterdays-freeway-fighters
