Celebrate Seattle’s Freeway Revolt

A community-wide open house celebrating the 50th anniversary of Seattle’s Freeway Revolt will be held 3–6pm Sunday, September 23, at the Central Area Senior Center, 500 30th Ave S, Seattle.

Free and open to the public, the event will highlight the citywide grassroots movement that helped quash plans for a dense network of freeways in Seattle. It will include information about the planned freeway grid as well as materials from the citizens’ resistance, including maps, flyers, letters and more. A special preview of a forthcoming documentary by filmmaker Minda Martin will also be shown.

Visitors are welcome to stop by any time from 3–6pm, say organizers Anna Rudd and Allan Davis. Rudd and Davis are among several former activists who will be on hand to talk with visitors.

The program schedule includes:

3pm Doors open, displays and information available

3:30pm Welcoming remarks
