"To honor 20th century philosopher and social theorist Paul Goodman’s
legacy, JSL Films, producer of the documentary Paul Goodman Changed My
Life, is holding a contest to help encourage transportation alternatives.
Paul Goodman, a writer, a radical, and a renaissance man, was the co-author
of “Banning Cars from Manhattan,” a 1961 proposal to improve New York’s
streets by eliminating private auto traffic. Nearly half a century later,
his ideas are now heralded as being before their time, with limiting
traffic in city centers becoming more and more common.
Paul Goodman Changed My Life is honoring Goodman’s legacy by inviting
people to propose change in their own communities. Anyone who submits five
proposals to their local government (mayor, city council, etc.) can enter a
drawing to win a new bicycle. One winner in the United States will win a
bike courtesy of Breezer Bikes, and one winner in Europe will win a bike
courtesy of Biomega."
