BLACK LIVES MATTER
California will never have the equitable, prosperous and inclusive communities that CalBike advocates for until we address and redress the anti-Black violence that has plagued our country since slavery. We want to actively contribute to ending systemic racism, especially in transportation policy, and most especially in bicycling advocacy. We promise to listen and learn how we can best do this work.
