Voices of the Downtown/Whittier Connection: Joelle

The Downtown Bikeways work group has been talking to people that live, work, go to school, eat, or recreate along the corridor that connects downtown with Loring Heights, Stevens Square, Whittier, and neighborhoods to the south.

One person that we spoke with is Joelle B., who teaches at MPS’ Emerson Spanish Immersion School. Emerson is located along the Downtown-Whittier corridor at 15th Street and LaSalle Ave S.

If you would like to share your support for a safe, protected bikeway that will connect downtown with Loring Heights, Stevens Square, Whittier, and neighborhoods to the south, please fill out this digital postcard. This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.

Introducing our 2019 Bicycle Connectors!

Join us in celebrating our 2019 Bicycle Connectors partners! Bicycle Connectors is an Our Streets Minneapolis initiative led by Cindy Vue, our Bicycle Encouragement and Volunteer Coordinator. Through Bicycle Connectors, we partner with local groups to use bicycling as a vehicle to connect and empower folks who are Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and/or people of color who are femme, trans, women, and/or non-binary.  

We're thrilled to welcome both new and returning partners in the second year of Bicycle Connectors. Each partner organization will provide unique support to folks in their community who are interested in biking for transportation.
