We’re not racist. We’re anti-racist. Yet we’re participating in a sport that is elitist and lacks cultural diversity. With this kit, we acknowledge that and the fact that we’re willing to put in the work to make change happen. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr: “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” We choose not to be silent and this kit is one way we can do that.
We designed this special-edition Savvy Bike kit as a fundraiser for the BLM movement and anti-racist activism. All proceeds will be donated to two organizations.
The first is Black Lives Matter, a national organization with the mission to focus on issues concerning racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration, economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights, environmental injustice, access to healthcare, access to quality education, and voting rights and suppression.
The second is Live In Peace, Inc., a youth movement based in East Palo Alto, CA, serving at-risk-youth (primarily BIPOC) through a personal development model rooted in nonviolence and healing, working with young people to overcome whatever barriers they face to a peaceful and fulfilled life. Their four programs teach self-sufficiency, skill building & success, and relationships & healing: SWAG focused on high school retention; GAP YEAR, focuses on preparing students for college; the COLLEGE INITIATIVE, focuses on providing scholarships for students; and the BIKE SHOP, focuses on skill-building and providing essential transportation.
