After a great women's clinic last year, Network For Advancing Athletes is back to offer the NAA-Mike Nosco Memorial Ride Women’s Clinic in support of the 2016 Mike Nosco Memorial Ride. Our women's clinic features Olympic, professional and elite women who offer insight and mentorship to empower you and your friends to complete the challenging Mike Nosco Memorial Ride in support of local families.
This clinic is for anyone who rides or aspires to ride bicycles! All ages and backgrounds are welcome!
This clinic is FREE! Our awesome mentors volunteer their time for this. Optional tax-deductible donations are welcomed in any amount and support ongoing mentorship programs through Network For Advancing Athletes (registered non-profit tax ID 47-1463617).
You'll hear from our mentors on a range of topics to help you become a better cyclist and empower you to take part in the Mike Nosco Memorial Ride. You'll get to ask our mentors questions and practice on-the-bike skills with them on a social ride through beautiful Thousand Oaks. Get to know them during a post-ride lunch, and get tips on how to clean and maintain your own bike with a demo from our pro mechanic, Sarah.
In other words, it's going to be awesome! Bring your friends! Tell everyone you know!
Thanks to a scholarship, I look forward to attending this incredibly necessary event.
For too long, dominant narratives in mobility advocacy have drawn from the experiences of the most privileged. In advocacy spaces, questions of equity are often treated as an afterthought or sidebar. Advocates “from diverse backgrounds” are often invited to the table to speak on behalf of an “underserved” population. While our own personal experiences or those of the people we represent are generally welcomed as anecdotal insight or emotional touchstones, that input is often set aside if it challenges the mainstream agenda.
The Untokening will bring together leaders of color and advocates whose voices have been marginalized to create new visions for mobility advocacy.
Held immediately following the Facing Race conference in Atlanta, the Untokening will center intersectionality and, through collaboration that embraces our expertise and the expertise of our communities, create a series of equity statements on critical issues, like gentrification and community engagement.
If you know what it is to be tokenized...
If you're tired of equity subcommittees and working groups that rarely result in real change...
If your perspectives and the experiences of your community aren't fully reflected in mobility advocacy...
