Podcast: Transportation Work Is Anti-Oppression Work

Editor's Note:

Diane Solomon brings us the powerful share Tamika Butler presented at Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition where her personal story illustrates why transportation work is anti-oppression work.

Transportation equity? Bicycle Justice?

Heck yeah!  Transportation and bicycling advocates are working to bring diversity, equity and inclusion of the unserved to the bicycle movement, but it’s new terrain and they have a lot of work to do.

Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, Radio KKUP’s Bike Life Radio Program, and Silicon Valley De-Bug welcome you to our podcast. It features a talk that Tamika Butler gave at Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition’s 2017 Bike Summit. Tamika addresses diversity, equity and inclusion in the bicycle movement and she frames transportation work as anti-oppression work.
