A team of Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition volunteers recently completed a research project where they collected data from all bicycle-related citations given out between 2009 and 2015. Volunteers researched such topics as gender, race, and the type and location of citations and arrests. Their report is based on public data obtained from the Fourth District Court and the MPD Office of Public Information. You can read it here.
Join the discussion at Hope Community on October 18th at 6pm.
Hope Community has limited seating, and because we want this conversation to be an intimate size, people of color (POC) will be given priority for 50% of the seats.
So often when we are talking about race and equitable treatment of people biking and walking in Minneapolis, white folks take up most of the space and energy, and this seating method helps us make sure POC have a chance to participate in this conversation.
If you identify as a person of color, please check that on the form and we'll prioritize your seating! After 50% of seats are reserved, we'll reserve seats on a first come first served basis. Thank you for your cooperation in making more equitable seating!
If you are unable to attend this event, we will live stream the presentation through this Facebook link. We won't be streaming the discussion afterwards, but will be tweeting throughout the event.
If you would like to volunteer to help sign folks in and set-up the event- sign-up below and select the shift!
