Do you identify as a person of color? Do you also identify as a woman, trans, or femme person who rides a bike and wants to meet other POC-WTF folks who ride and wrench?
If so, please join us Monday June 1, 5:30-7:30p at Venture North, in the Harrison Neighborhood of North Minneapolis, for an Open House celbrating our first monthly Grease Rag Ride & Wrench open shop night specifically for POC!
This is our "soft" opening, so we won't have the full open shop set up yet. We will have some snacks, we will have some conversations about what we'd like to see in the space, and we will have "fix a flat" skill shares at 6p and 7p. Monthly Grease Rag will be happening at this location on First Mondays.
Grease Rag volunteers Asialy, Natalia, Josey, and I (Low) will be facilitating the space. We are being supported by the mechanical staff at Venture North.
Please remember that this location is open to all women, trans, femme identifying people who also identify as people of color. Intersections are a beautiful thing.
Friends who do not identify as people of color, please spread the word to your friends!!
We need help to make this happen. Bring treats, share skills and knowledge, welcome folks, promote events on Facebook... we need help with all of these things. Contact us! Let's work together to make this place more inclusive of people like us.
