CalBike is a supporter, sponsor, and participant of the Untokening, a multiracial collective founded in 2016 that addresses mobility justice in the lived experiences of marginalized communities. The aim of the Untokening is to develop networks, trainings, and resources that support BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) leaders who want to bring their experiences within marginalized communities into their professional work.
CalBike was a sponsor and participant at Untokening California, a day-long event in Los Angeles that created space to focus on the personal and interpersonal work it takes to be BIPOC in mobility advocacy, planning, and policy spaces. Participants shared experiences of tokenism, sharpened decolonizing tools, and identified actions to help guide the mobility system toward justice.
As the Untokening moves forward, CalBike will be active in further developing the the collective’s mobility justice principles and relating the principles to state policy change in California.
