What: Pedaling for Justice Ride: http://pedalingforjustice.org/ When: Monday, October 28 at 9 am Where: Lincoln Park, 4116 Durazno Ave. Oct 25: Please join Velo Paso as we support his ride to Austin As part of his therapy and in an effort to raise awareness about impunity and corruption in Mexico, Carlos will ride his bike more than 670 miles from El Paso, Texas, to Austin the state’s capital. Carlos, a member of the El Paso-based nonprofit group “Mexicans in Exile” is calling his campaign “Pedaling for Justice” and he is focused on creating something positive out of his terrible experience. Right now Carlos is training intensively, and he needs your help and support for this challenging campaign to raise awareness about corruption and impunity in his homeland and Mexico’s dire need to institute a Rule of Law so that families like his are not forced to flee for their lives. To accomplish his goals, Carlos needs funding and resources for transportation and housing for his support crew on the 10-day long journey. He also needs funding for a press conference and event to be held in Austin when he finishes his journey. Help Carlos heal and raise awareness about a growing problem with violence and impunity in his homeland. http://pedalingforjustice.org/
