HAPPY 10YR ANNIVERSARY
It's the 10th year anniversary of Bikes 4 Life bicycle shop located on 7th St. in West Oakland, in the heart of the historic Lower Bottom neighborhood. Operated by residents of the area, this non-profit brainchild of local Tony Coleman is a true inspiration for Oaklanders and all communities impacted by gentrification. It serves as both a community based economic enterprise and a hub for neighborhood meetings and community organizing campaigns
RESIDENTS & SM BUSINESSES PUSHED OUT
Over the past decade, working class families and small businesses have steadily been pushed out & replaced by the more affluent that greedy landlords hoping to accomodate. Rent no longer affordable for the common joe or their families.
West Oakland was the birthplace of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense and Bikes 4 Life proudly carries on their tradition of community mobilization. The success of Bikes 4 Life symbolizes a community’s ongoing capacity and commitment to stand up for itself and for all those who struggle to survive in the face of an economic system that values profits over people.
Bikes 4 Life has an economic model that is grounded in self-determination and self-respect. It is an investment in a green economy benefiting current and future generations. B4L needs your support to keep going. Please support today.
