…In Other News!


It was a great day for the students of New Los Angeles Charter Middle School in Mid-City Los Angeles yesterday! Students were treated to a free bike clinic, or “bike repair day”, so to speak, along with a free panel on the importance of bike safety, road rules, and more. Yolanda Davis-Overstreet of RIDE In Living Color: Bicycling Advocacy, served as the main organizer of the event, which was the first of its kind at the school. Following the bike clinic, attendants participated in a raffle for bike helmets, bike lights, and even two free bikes! Parents and community organizers alike were ecstatic to see such advocacy for alternative forms of transportation in L.A., as was yours truly! To learn about how you can support or participate in more bike clinics in the future, check out Yolanda’s website at Ride In Living Color, and go New L.A.! The future is ours </:D

I'm a writer, editor, and photographer with a passion for community development in Los Angeles. While my editing work covers a range of different subjects, my writing focuses primarily on social welfare in the city, including education at L.A.'s public middle and high schools, public transportation planning and efficacy, housing and small business policy, as well as voting turnout for local elections and policy. My photography is similarly city-based, focusing mostly on what makes Los Angeles home to so many working-class people from all across the U.S.A. and throughout the world. Enjoy.
