Last year, CicLAvia Chief Strategist Tafarai Bayne joined Social Venture Partners LA's Fast Pitch 2020, where he presented a fresh, dynamic vision for open streets in Los Angeles as our city was adapting to its 'new normal.' Since then, we've continued our work guiding safe streets protocol, directing aid & support to local businesses and nonprofits, and working with other transportation groups in LA.
Curious to hear what the Accelerator cohort has been up to since then?
Tafarai will be participating in a special Spotlight Session along with other SVPLA leaders, to talk about our biggest successes from the last year, what many of us are focused on in 2021, and how YOU can take action now on issues from housing and public transit to environmental justice, civic engagement, and dismantling mass incarceration.
ACT-LA, LA Forward and Los Angeles Walks helped launch and lead Healthy LA, a coalition of 330+ organizations who successfully pushed LA leaders to enact crucial protections for tenants, workers, small business owners, and immigrants disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
LA Compost became part of a statewide grant to establish community composting across all of California, facilitating community involvement in and ownership over their local food systems.
Our partners at Los Angeles Room & Board, CURB, and ARC will be joining, too, to talk about their diverse efforts (and successes!) in a wide array of policy areas.

You can still become a CicLAvia Street Star with a monthly donation that shows your long-term support for active transportation, small businesses, open streets, and good health. Plus, we'll send you gifts!
