Join us for a special screening of Citizen Jane: Battle for the City sponsored by Jane's Walk MKE.Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was an urbanist and activist whose writings championed a community-based approach to city building.  Citizen Jane is a timely tale of what can happen when engaged citizens fight the power for the sake of a better world. Arguably no one did more to shape our understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and writer who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects.
