QT and BIPOC volunteer rider experiences with The Bike Brigade
The Bike Brigade serves vulnerable communities by signing up volunteer cyclists to deliver food and other resources to individuals in need. In collaboration with The Bike Brigade, this project is meant to highlight the experiences of QT and BIPOC volunteer bicyclists, in order to increase The Bike Brigade’s capacity and inform their anti-oppression and equity framework. Research participants will engage in arts-based methods in addition to interviews to discuss the ways in which they use the bicycle to contribute to anti-racism, gender-based violence prevention, and environmental justice, particularly within the context of COVID-19. This project provides space for volunteers to share their stories, and contribute to increasing equity and access to The Bike Brigade’s program, as well as bicycling more broadly.
