Today, #DamienTalks with Genoveva Islas, the Program Director for Cultiva La Salud and the newest member of the California Bike Coalition (CalBike) Board of Directors. 

Because her work with Cultiva La Salud deals with access to food in the San Joaquin Valley, Islas both brings a public health perspective to the CalBike Board and serves as a champion on issues of cultural and geographic equity.

Apparently, there is a large part of California beyond the Bay Area and Greater Los Angeles area that could use some attention when it comes to creating safe and attractive spaces to move about and just be in the community. Islas wants CalBike to continue its great work in the state's urban population centers while doing a better job advocating for and representing the interests of the people who live somewhere else.

This interview is part of our bike month series focusing on bike issues throughout the state; but we ended up talking about a lot of things outside of two-wheeled advocacy. Check it out.

We’re always looking for sponsors, show ideas, and feedback. You can contact me at damien@streetsblog.org, at twitter @damientypes, online at Streetsblog California or on Facebook at StreetsblogCA
