Thanks to Channie Jones (Program & Administrative Manager), Kurt Nettleton (Videographer), and Cheria Caldwell (Urban Design & Research Fellow), Big Car’s capacity for documentation, evaluation and programs is now larger than ever. You’ll likely see Channie hosting events and organizing volunteers. You’ll see Kurt filming and taking pictures at every Big Car event or project. And you’ll see Channie collecting and organizing data about Big Car’s impact.
