When it comes to infrastructure, very little has been implemented in LA that was agreed on by City leadership. Now it's up to us to hold them to it! We're supporting the Healthy Streets LA initiative started by Streetsforall. Read more below!


Help us build a healthier Los Angeles!

Our grassroots led ballot measure will create over 1,500 miles of safer, greener, and more efficient streets in LA.

Since the passage of the Mobility Plan in 2015, Los Angeles has only implemented 95 miles out of 3,137 miles planned (about 3% in 7 years). Our city is ignoring its own plan, and even worse, sometimes working against it. A legal mandate is needed to get the city to do what they have already said they want to do, and to give us, its residents, cleaner air, safer streets, less traffic, and options on how we get around town.

The Healthy Streets LA ballot measure will require the City of Los Angeles to implement its Mobility Plan 2035 whenever the City repaves or otherwise works on a street.

Sounds simple, right? Here's the challenge: we need just over 93,000 physical signatures from registered voters by May 28. It's an uphill battle we're proud to take on and we hope you will too! We're calling for volunteers and area directors to take the lead on spreading the word and collecting signatures. Sign up using the button below!

Social Justice Partners Fast Pitch

We’re proud to share that our Executive Director Eli Akira Kaufman was selected to participate in Social Justice Partners Los Angeles (SJPLA) Fast Pitch on March 30, 2022

Fast Pitch is a 10-week communication skills training program for early-stage nonprofit initiatives like LACBC’s partnership with Sunset4All as a part of SJPLA’s Accelerator Cohort that supports systems change advocacy in Greater Los Angeles. The program trains participants to communicate their vision for a more just and vibrant region and connects them with leaders in the business, philanthropic, and nonprofit communities.  

Eli’s Fastpitch speaks to the reality that Angelenos can only have peace on the street—and more livable communities—when everyone in Los Angeles has an equitable piece of the street. Learn about LACBC’s theory of change as he presents our vision to improve the quality of life for everyone in LA by advocating for a safe, equitable, and joyous region to bicycle. 

We hope you will join us to celebrate Eli and the rest of the phenomenal leaders featured at this year's Fast Pitch!

Acknowledging Victims of Traffic Violence

We share stories of those who have lost their lives to traffic violence, but what of the cyclists that survive? Our member, Jose, was hit by a car but his experience is nowhere near over.

"In last August I was hit by car on Venice Blvd almost died and now I'm on slow recovery. I want to ride back but I can't now, I have to wait for my full recovery.

The advocacy and education work LACBC is committed to is so necessary in preventing stories like Jose's whose life has come to a halt as a result of a reckless driver. Cyclists deserve to travel to destinations and enjoy rides without fear of injury or death. We send our positive thoughts for quick healing for Jose and all those who have been hurt on the road!
