Here’s your ticket! Bike citations & related arrests
October 18, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
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. The report will be released October 3rd. This event will be a presentation and discussion of the report.
IMPORTANT: YOU MUST RESERVE A SEAT!
Hope Community Inc. (611 E Franklin Ave, (612) 874-8867) has limited seating, and we want this conversation to be an intimate size. People of color (POC) will be given priority for 50% of the seats. 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. 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. Thank you for your cooperation in making more equitable seating!
