SF Pedicabbers Stand in Solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter Movement

On New Years Eve, some Pedicab Operators in San Francisco will be donating an hours worth of fares to the Anti-Repression Crew Bail Fund to support protesters arrested in these last few weeks of demonstrations against police brutality. We are following the example of workers at Arbor Cafe, who last weekend donated their tips and raised hundreds of dollars towards supporting arrested protesters.

*If you are a Pedicabber but aren’t riding on New Year’s, please consider donating the equivalent of an hours worth of rides (this could be anywhere from $20 to $50, or whatever feels do-able for you).

*If you are a service worker who makes tips, please consider talking to your co-workers about doing something similar if you can.

*If you aren’t a service worker or Pedicabber, and if you’d like to donate individually, the link to donate is at https://rally.org/arcbailfund
