How can we drive change in our communities and move past stagnant committees and outdated regulations? In this talk, activist Jason Roberts of Build a Better Block encourages us to stop waiting around. Even if that means painting on our own crosswalks and blackmailing ourselves into action.

Roberts is responsible for some of the most outrageous initiatives, going out of his way to break every outdated, pro-automobile ordinance in a neighborhood in order to show people, just for one weekend, what kind of transformation is possible.
