A letter from Liz Cornish, Executive Director, Bikemore
I have some news I want to share with you.
Last night I accepted an award at the National Bike Summit for Advocacy Organization of the Year from the League of American Bicyclists. OF THE YEAR! IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY! It was a full circle moment. Four years ago I left my job at the League to move to Baltimore and become the Executive Director of Bikemore. I wanted the chance to grow an organization from the ground up and be part of a community of advocates, activists, and public servants all working collectively to make Baltimore a better place to live — for everyone.
We received this recognition because of our ability to deliver big wins despite impossible odds. We’ve gone head to head with City Hall and advocated for change that has transformed how our streets are designed. And through that we’ve remained a partner to the Department of Transportation so that we can be a resource to them, and maintain a seat at the table representing the people who depend on us. People just like you.
So I’m asking you to help us keep going. Make a donation of $50 today, and you can feel good about being part of something bigger than yourself. Being part of something that just got the attention of everyone across the country fighting to make streets safer for people who bike.
We love Baltimore. And we’re asking Baltimore and our friends across the country to give love back. We’ve done so much with so little. Imagine what’s possible when we all pitch in.
