On Monday, Dijon Kizzee, a Black man, was riding his bike when he was stopped by two deputies in Los Angeles for violating some still unidentified provision of the vehicle code. While he was moving away from the two officers, at least 18 shots were fired at Dijon and he was killed at the scene. Dijon’s murder is only the latest of uncountably many tragic cases of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) being murdered by the police.
Congratulations, Tim H! Thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket(s). You helped us raise $20,000 that will directly support the work we are doing to make walking, biking, and taking public transit safe, convenient, and affordable.
Our hearts break for George Floyd, his family, friends, and the Black community. We stand with Breonna Taylor and her community, and Ahmaud Arbery and his. Existing safely in public spaces as a Black person is a transportation issue and, more importantly, a human right.
