Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) says
Join us at this intimate discussion with guest speaker Veronica O. Davis, Founder of Black Women Bike. Veronica will be coming to town for the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation’s 8th Annual Complete Streets Forum.

Veronica O. Davis is a dynamic American transportation guru who uses her knowledge and skills to spark progressive social change. In July 2012, the White House recognized her as a Champion of Change and Transportation Innovator for her accomplishments and community advocacy in the District of Columbia. Throughout her career as a registered professional engineer, Veronica has found ways to give back to the community.

Black Women Bike (BWB) was founded in 2011 over a twitter conversation between three friends. Four years later the organization has grown to over 1,500 women in the District of Columbia Region. BWB was formed in a perfect storm of racial tensions, a Mayoral race, and a journalist peddling the idea that bicycling was for white people only. This is the BWB story, what they have achieved, and what’s next.

Tickets are $5 for Complete Streets Forum registrants and $10 for the general public.
