My name is Alisha and a month ago I pledged to ride over 250 miles for a cause I felt very close to and I wanted to find a way to give that same energy back to a movement I’ve been part of my whole life.
Bike Ride for Black Lives is a community event to honor the #BlackLivesMatter movement and the fight to change the injustices in the Criminal Justice System.
I’m pledging to ride 400 miles (12 miles a day) in the month of July to honor the 400+ years the Black and African American community has been fighting for social justice in the United States.
Please join me in fundraising for the following 5 organizations who are actively aiding the cause and preserving our Black History. All funds will be distributed evenly to:
Black Lives Matter
NAACP Legal Defense Fund
Equal Justice Initiative
National Museum of African American History and Culture
Civil Rights Museum in Atlanta
See the Facebook event page for Bike Ride for Black Lives to get more information for the community event on July 12, 2020 at 9:00am.
Let’s keep the movement going!
“We Bike to Stay Alive”
