Fiesta De Las Luces: Opening Fundraiser for “Communities for Mobility”

We here at MCM/City of Lights are so excited to announce our official coming out! MCM plans to address the intersecting bicycle, pedestrian, and transit needs of low-income communities of color throughout Los Angeles. (Note, we will continue our safety and advocacy efforts as a volunteer led non-profit, formerly an LACBC program.)

Come mingle with other environmental and social justice progressive folks and learn about our plans for 2012-2013!

We will be hosting a small “friendraiser” in East Hollywood after work at our friends Lauren and Danny’s lovely home to celebrate our new beginnings and raise a little cash to get our organization going! The entrance is $25 cash at the door, which includes food (veg options) and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Bring a friend!

Thank you for all of your support and believing in us over the years! Bikes and public transit encouraged, it’s only a 12 min walk from the Vermont/Beverly red line station and also right next to the 10 bus off of Melrose.

For any questions, feel free to contact us at

Thanks and we hope to see you there!
Allison, MCM Board Member
