About WISC Fellow Alon Raab
 A cyclist since age three, Alon Raab is a writer, activist and teacher in the department of Religious Studies at University of California, Davis. His true religions are football (soccer) and bicycles - playing, riding, writing and dreaming about them. He will discuss how the bicycle has been a vehicle of modernity, social transformation, resistance and women’s independence in the Middle East. From bike-riding Turkish and Lebanese women in the 1920s to Cairo street murals depicting a child riding a bicycle in defiance of tanks. Bicycles have impacted political and social developments while also capturing the imagination of writers, artists and filmmakers.
 
About Chainbreaker Collective
Chainbreaker is an economic and environmental justice organization in Santa Fe with over 400 members, most of whom are transit-dependent bus riders and bicyclists. For over a decade, Chainbreaker has been changing the way people think about transportation, economic justice and civil rights in Santa Fe. Chainbreaker utilizes grassroots community organizing and popular education to address transportation and housing issues because they present clear examples of how global environmental, economic and social problems manifest locally.
