Alameda County Bike Mobile:

If your bike or your child’s bike is making one of those mystery sounds or collecting dust because it has a flat tire, bring it to Boys and Girls Club between 10am-1pm. The BikeMobile can fix flat tires, adjust brakes and gears, and even replace broken or worn out parts like chains, seats, and tires. The only thing it can’t do is replace missing wheels or gears. While the mechanics work on your bike they’ll explain how it works and how to keep it running smooth. Bike or no bike, everyone is welcome to attend to learn about maintenance, safety, and more! This is a first come, first serve event. We can only guarantee to fix the first 20 bikes that sign up, so please come early! This service is sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission’s Safe Routes to Schools Program. Read more here: https://bikemobile.org/

SF Urban Film Fest:

The SF Urban Film Fest gathers a diverse, engaged audience and uses the power of storytelling to spark discussion and civic engagement around urban issues. We ask what it means to live together and create just and equitable cities. We are an interdisciplinary storytelling organization that produces an annual film festival, year-round film-based discussion events, and long-term community storytelling projects to make our cities more healthy, inclusive, and culturally abundant. In pursuit of our mission, SFUFF empowers the communities of color affected to confront urban issues by centering their stories and community-generated policy solutions. Our bottoms-up strategy is informed by our theory of change that we must work in the overlapping spheres of narrative, spatial, and social justice simultaneously. For us, narrative justice means we focus on generating culture (stories we tell about ourselves) of and with communities whose voices have been marginalized. Spatial justice means we make urban planning more equitable and just. We promote social justice through diverse representation internally and in folks we work with, including curators, filmmakers, panelists, staff, and volunteers.
