AFH Shout-Out to Bikes Not Bombs!

Bikes not Bombs!

As a teen empowerment (and employment!) program for teen-artists, AFH has much in common with Bikes Not Bombs, an awesome organization located in JP.  While we use art, they use bikes as a vehicle for social change. How cool is that?

Evan and Abdul work on some bikes!

Evan works on AFH's Educational Director, Lesley Horrall's bike!

Recently, Bikes Not Bombs' after-school, teen bike repair team, Chain Reaction, which travels to community and youth centers around Boston for mobile bike repairs, brought their tools and can-do attitude to AFH. Fatima, Abdul, Evan, Jose and mentor Sarah gave much needed TLC to our AFH messenger bike and AFH staff bikes. A bonus was getting to know more about Bikes Not Bombs and the teens they empower.

Jose, Abdul, Fatima, Evan, and Sarah! THANKS, Chain Reaction!

For more info about their programs check out their Facebook! And keep checking back here for more AFH friends, supporters, and ways to get involved!
