An afternoon on equity and advocacy
Last Thursday, 150 advocates and planners from across North America came together here in Pittsburgh for the Future Bike conference at the David Lawrence Convention Center. Presented by the League of American Bicyclists‘ Women Bike Program and Equity Initiative, the afternoon consisted of workshops and panels where participants explored ways to create a vision for bicycling that reflects the diversity of our communities.
Bike Pittsburgh’s Becca Susman led a panel on Future Messaging with two additional, inspiring women – Monica Garrison of Black Girls Do Bike and Echo Rivera of Echo in the City. The women each brought their experience and ideas to a discussion on rethinking the images and mediums we use for connecting with underrepresented communities.
