BLR Support Fund for René and Fahad

There was an incredible turnout for the Black Liberation Ride for Juneteenth. Thank you to everyone who came to support and create community on bikes.

Unfortunately, toward the end of the ride we had a hit and run incident with two different cars. Two drivers engaged in reckless endangerment and drove through a group of 15-20 cyclists. No one was severely hurt, but two bikes were seriously damaged, one beyond repair. 

This fund is for René and Fahad to replace their bikes and assist with physical / mental recovery from the incident. They were blocking the intersection at the end of the group and were trying to protect the other riders from the vehicles that were pushing through the crowd. Please donate what you can to support.

Despite this being a bittersweet ending to the ride, we will stay vigilant, and continue to take space on the roads. We appreciate your support of POC cyclists in Portland.
