QUEENS DAILY EAGLE: AAPI women from Queens organize solidarity ride against racist violence
The Ride For Justice, organized by Biking Public Project co-founder Helen Ho and city council candidates Julie Won and Carolyn Tran, will begin at Queensbridge Park at 2 p.m. Saturday and traverse bike lanes throughout the borough.
Ho said it was important to center Asian American and Pacific Islander women because group rides are typically organized by men, and because women have been particularly targeted by anti-Asian attackers.
“It’s a ride that’s open to everyone but we wanted to create one led and organized by AAPI women because we noticed that, even though we all enjoy taking bike rides, all the bike rides are organized by men right now,” Ho said. “We thought about it in light of everything that has happened in the past year-plus and extremely magnified starting in Atlanta last month.”
