I'm moderating a panel discussion about bicycles after the screening of this film on Tuesday at 6pm at the SF Public Library. It's free. Please spread the word and hope you can make it!
Here's the FB invite: https://www.facebook.com/events/556706267712233/570530179663175/
Join the San Francisco Green Film Festival
for a special screening of
'With My Own Two Wheels'
a film about the bicycle as a vehicle for change around the world.
**Screening followed by panel discussion with activists and members of the bicycle community, including:
~ Rose Aguilar, "Your Call", KALW (moderator)
~ Paul Freedman, Founder, Rock the Bike
~ Julian Rhoads, IDEX, San Francisco
~ Cycles of Change, Oakland
For many Americans, the bicycle is a choice. An expensive toy. An eco-conscious mode of transportation. For countless others across the globe, it is much more.
For Fred, a health worker in Zambia, the bicycle is a means of reaching twice as many patients. For Bharati, a teenager in India, it provides access to education. For Mirriam, a disabled Ghanaian woman, working on bicycles is an escape from the stigma attached to disabled people in her community. For Carlos, a farmer in Guatemala, pedal power is a way to help neighbors reduce their impact on the environment. For Sharkey, a young man in California, the bicycle is an escape from the gangs that consume so many of his peers.
With My Own Two Wheels weaves together the experiences of these five individuals into a single story about how the bicycle can change the world—one pedal stroke at a time.
from Meetup Host, my favorite veg friends are those who are eco, and ride bicycles. 50% chance I plan to be there.
