"Ramps to Nowhere" Viewing Party Interest Form
In 2022, frontline communities are fighting against the business-as-usual expansion of highways and organizing to build a more equitable transportation system in Washington.
This story isn’t new.
Host a screening of "Ramps to Nowhere", a film about the successful fight against highway expansion that would have torn apart neighborhoods throughout Seattle in the 1960s and 1970s. Afterwards, have a discussion with friends and neighbors about how we can continue this work in our communities today.
What's the connection between "Ramps to Nowhere" and our current transportation system?
Washington state spends BILLIONS expanding highways, even though we’ve known for decades that expansion doesn’t relieve congestion: people just drive more, congestion returns, and we have even more air pollution and more climate change. If we come together, we can change this! It will take all of us to win investments in a transportation system that is efficient and affordable, protects against air and climate pollution, and is safe for children walking to school or a bus stop. This is our vision for a Just Transition in Transportation; see

If you organize a public viewing with one or more organizational sponsors we may be able help arrange for folks from our speakers bureau (film director, freeway activists, etc) to come speak on a panel after the showing. We also encourage you to think about inviting folks working on local transportation projects (transportation advocates and officials, politicians) to come speak in order to make connections between the past and present.

What's your name?
Organizational affiliation, if applicable. (You may host as an individual or as an org, but if you're a member of 350WA, Front & Centered, or another org we'd love to know that!)
Where will you be showing the film (city/town)?
Will the showing be co-hosted by an organization (school, club, faith group, other non-profit)?
If you have one or more organizations co-hosting, we may be able to provide speakers connected to the film (director, freeway activists) for a post-screening panel discussion. Would you like to be connected to our speakers bureau?
If you have an organizational sponsor, it can be great to invite local organizations to co-sponsor and broaden the audience and deepen the discussion. School groups, faith groups, outdoor clubs and service organizations are great options. We may be able to help connect you to potential co-hosts in your community, are you interested?
Do you plan to show the film in-person, or online?
If you plan to show the film in person, is your location wheelchair accessible?
Do you have a date in mind? (specific date, or general goal like March 2022, is fine)
Is there anything you would like us to know, or do you have any questions for us about hosting a screening?
