Hi-I'm very excited to combine 2 of my favorite things--biking and social justice (no rock climbing component, sadly). On September 17, I'll join Bread & Roses to do a 10-mile ride through Philadelphia, stopping along the way to meet with representatives from many of their grantees and learn about the work they're doing--a perfect orientation to my new(ish) home. Thanks for supporting Bread & Roses!
About the ride: We will travel approximately 10 miles through Center City, South Philly, and West Philly to visit locations of significance to organizations working for racial and economic justice in our City: Decarcerate PA and #No215Jail; Girls Justice League; Spiral Q; and the Philadelphia Coalition for Affordable Communities. Trained volunteers will lead the group, ensuring safe riding and that no participants are left behind.
Who Benefits From Funds Raised: The money you raise will support the meaningful work of Bread & Roses community fund, a unique gathering of activists committed to supporting social justice by raising and distributing funds. In its 39 year-history, Bread & Roses has distributed over $10 million in the Philadelphia region to groups working for access to health care; economic justice; a clean, safe environment; civil and human rights; peace; and more. Bread & Roses also provides services, like technical assistance and leadership development, to grantees and donors.
To support the critical work of Bread & Roses, we are suggesting that Individuals set a fundraising goal of $125 and Teams raise $400. However, we would be thrilled if you set your sights higher and raised more to help fight for social justice in Philadelphia!
