LACBC at the National Bike Summit

March 8, 2010 at 11:30 pm | Posted in Bike News | 1 Comment

LACBC is on the way to the National Bike Summit, where we will be lobbying Congress on Key Bicycle and Transportation issues, including Federal Complete Streets Policy, Safe Routes to School Increased Federal Funding (and expansion to high schools!), Urban Parks and Cycling, and Funding issues.

Collectively, the LA delegation (including Elysa Walks (from Giant Bicycles), Andréa White-Kjoss(from Bikestation), Jessica Meaney (from Safe Routes to School) will be meeting with the offices of Maxine Waters, Diane Watson, Jane Harman, Brad Sherman, Henry Waxman, Laura Richardson, Loretta Sanchez, Ed Royce, to name a few.  We managed to obtain 14 meetings out of the 20 possible meetings with LA-area Congresspeople.  Truly exciting! (and lots of running around for many of us on the day of lobbying).

Following the Summit, we will create a powerpoint presentation available online, with the most important take-home messages of the Summit.

Of special note is City of Lights, which is part of a Wednesday morning panel called “Broadening the Movement to Underserved Communities.”
