Dear Everyone at Critical Mass and Sacramento Bicycle Kitchen,
Environmental advocacy groups are invited to participate in this year's Earth Day Festival at Sacramento State on April 22nd, 2010. When the Environmental Students Organization (ESO) invited Sacramento Food Not Bombs to table, I signed myself up to do it as an FNB volunteer and then thought, Wouldn't it be great to see other groups I support, like Sac CM and SBK, there, too? I have been in touch with Elizabeth of ESO over this. Some ideas about bringing bike groups into the festival have already been thrown
around by ESO. See e-mail below. They have grand ideas for your group's hoped for attendance!
What do the groups think? Do your groups want to reach out to the Sac State population on your role as community/environmental/bicycle advocates? Things I could see happening: tabling, Massing on campus, small bike repairs for donations, soliciting volunteers, etc. Any way, in the least, I would be more than happy to carry flyers for Mass rides and SBK shop info myself along with my FNB materials.
Seeking suggestions, approval, and discussion.
Also, surely, other environmental/bike groups invited. Please join in or spread the word.

I will call you before 6pm today. I hope I can catch you. If not, some of the ideas ESO discussed regarding the Bike Kitchen/Critical Mass was getting a swarm of biker folk to ride through/around Sac State as a statement of sustainable transport. We will be having music/DJ on Earth Day, so the Critical Mass swarm could be "introduced" on the loudspeakers by the DJ--at which point, the swarm makes their debut entrance, leaving Sac State Students in awe of how many people believe in alternative transport.
What do you think?
