For the past two decades, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, established in 1998, has been working to make Los Angeles County a safe, healthy, and equitable place to ride a bike through advocacy, education, and outreach. LACBC has shared leadership in supporting the formation of numerous active transportation organizations, active street events like CicLAvia, the 2010 Bike Master Plan, the launch of Vizion Zero in 2015 and the passage of Measure M 2017. In this session, LACBC will start the conversation by sharing the results of Which way LACBC? a Community Input Forum recently hosted to learn and affirm what the community wants for the future of a multimodal Los Angeles.
BLACK LIVES MATTER
California will never have the equitable, prosperous and inclusive communities that CalBike advocates for until we address and redress anti-Black violence. 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. To our community members who experience the violence of racism on a daily basis: we see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.
