Developing the Infrastructure of Active Transportation Advocacy
presented by Mychal Tetteh, CEO of the Community Cycling Center
In his first 30 days as the CEO of the Community Cycling Center, Mychal Tetteh had the opportunity to connect with public engagement professionals, community leaders, city planners, transportation experts, and everyday people who all share a common question: How can I be a more effective active transportation advocate?
Mychal will share what he has found out about the gaps in our advocacy network and will continue his campaign to crowd-source solutions and shape the evolution of active transportation advocacy in the City of Portland.
A social entrepreneur and active transportation advocate, Mychal returned to the Community Cycling Center as their new CEO in September, having served the organization as the Operations Director of the bike shop for over 5 years. He left the Cycling Center in 2011 to help ensure the successful launch of the Village Market in New Columbia. He is the founder of the Major Taylor Cycling Club of Portland and a member of the City Club of Portland's Bicycle Transportation Advocacy Committee.
