A 2020 Update: Norte’s Bikes For All
Here’s a quick update on this challenging year. In 2020, we felt the cancellation of our Bikes For All–formerly The Amigos–programs. These are impactful events with our community partners at Oak Park, Life Skill Center, New Campus, and the Clubhouse’s summertime meetups. Yet, there have been some bright spots, and we are finding our way forward.
Norte’s progress to becoming a more inclusive and equitable organization continues. This year we have:
- We invested in 3 more adaptive bikes for our bike library for anyone to use for free at the Civic Center.
- Launched Norte MeetUps for the deaf community earlier this fall (above photo).
- We partnered with Arts For All on their Art Walk/Ride/Roll event this summer.
- Adopted a bold new 2021/22 Strategic Plan that puts equity and inclusion at the forefront of Norte’s work. View and download it below.
We’re looking forward to what’s on the other side of this winter and will need your support again when the time is right.
P.S. And a big shout out to 4Front Credit Union for their financial support allowing us to invest in these adaptive bikes. Thank you, 4FCU!
