"Grassroots democracy works best
when there is a healthy give-and-take
of ideas." --Pat Quinn

Pat Quinn has served the people of
Illinois - both as a citizen and public
official - for over a quarter century.
Since 1975, Quinn has organized grassroots
petition drives that have garnered more
than 4 million signatures for consumer
protection laws, tax reform, and giving
citizens a stronger voice in government.


An award-winning San Francisco film and
videomaker (Return of the Scorcher, We
Are Traffic) for over fifteen years, Ted
White has for the last several years
focused on creating documentaries which
promote transportation alternatives with
an emphasis on bicycles.

Ted White's lecture/presentation "Traffic
Calming and Beyond: Changing the Mindset"
features excerpts from his upcoming video
on traffic calming, mixed use development
and bike paths.

He will also discuss ways to address the
divide between car culture and bike culture.
