Where do we go from here?

That question has been on the minds of a lot of people since the election results came rolling in last Tuesday night. Now that a little time has passed, #DamienTalks checks in with CalBike, the largest transportation reform organization in the state and second largesT bicycle and pedestrian advocacy group in the country. Joining myself is Jeanie Ward-Waller.

Ward-Waller and I try to dig through the election results across California to see if there were any statewide trends that we could trace, and to touch on what is, and isn't, going on in the state legislature's Special Session on Transportation. Spoiler: not much is gong on in the state legislature's Special Session on Transportation.

But things get a little more interesting when we talk about what CalBike, and by extension pretty much every bicycle and pedestrian advocacy group, can and should do to be more inclusive. CalBike is ahead of the game when compared to many of its peer organizations, but as we discuss, it's far from perfect and still has some work to do.

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.
