Elly Blue and Joe Biel will co-present a new interactive discussion and presentation including eight short films about Groundswell movements, incidences where people demand better neighborhood conditions and successfully implement them. Stories include how Reading, Pennsylvania came to be 13th on the East Coast for bike commuting without any advocacy or government spending, former gang members riding bikes to raise awareness about violence, Mexico City’s superhero of the streets, a luchador called Peatonito, the story of the League of American Bicyclists’ equity council, and more.
