Tell us a little about yourself.
In college, I studied elementary education. In the same year I started to get around by bicycle, I was hit by a driver and hurt my leg. It got me into advocacy, making me look into: “Is it safe to ride a bike?” and “How can I make it safer?” That was in 2005. It still has been ongoing on a daily basis.
An interview with Chris Hwang and Jess Strange of Walk Oakland Bike Oakland.
Tell us about your Oaklavía and its audience.
Oaklavía is an open streets event founded in 2010 for Oakland residents to highlight livability and to experience the urban environment without cars. Roads are closed to cars temporarily so people can bike, dance and participate in activities along the route.
