Politics and cycling advocacy
This workshop aims to create a discussion surrounding the intersection between cycling advocacy (in all its forms) and the political process (writ small and large).
I've been a bike mechanic for 12 years and a lawyer for 3. My practice is primarily in criminal defense and have done several cycling related cases. I've also been active doing advocacy through Ghost Bikes Montréal over the last year. I'm hoping to attract attendees who have relevant experience as well as those hoping to take up the cause.
I propose to use my own experience as a lawyer and a cycling advocate to facilitate a discussion surrounding effective political strategies to promote cycling.
B!B! attendees come from a diversity of places and I hope that by sharing our successes and failures we can promote the former and avoid the latter.
