Live, Online Discussion: Pedaling Toward Equity
Bicycling has more than doubled from 1.7 billion trips in 2001 to more than four billion trips in 2009 — and youth, women, and communities of color are playing a key role in shifting transportation demand towards safe, accessible, and equitable bicycling for all.
A new report from the League and the Sierra Club, “The New Majority: Pedaling Toward Equity” showcases first-of-its-kind analysis and data on the changing face and new leadership in the bike movement nationwide, as well as key challenges and opportunities to advance equity moving forward.
Intended to be a conversation-starter rather than a comprehensive analysis, we’re taking the discussion digital with a Google Hangout on Thursday, June 27 at 1 p.m. Eastern. This live, interactive video conference will be moderated by Hamzat Sani, co-author of the report and member of the League’s Equity Advisory Council, and feature local and national leaders working on equity in bicycling, including:
- Allison Mannos of Multicultural Communities for Mobility
- Anthony Taylor of the Major Taylor Bicycling Club of Minnesota (and member of the League’s Equity Advisory Council)
- Rob Sadwosky of the BIcycle Transportation Alliance in Portland, Ore
- Andy Clarke, League President
Please join us for this important conversation — on the League’s first Google Hangout!
