Latino Graduation, Black Lives Matter, Bike To Work Week

Latino ISU students have their own Graduation ceremony in Spanish at ISU. Berenice Real, and Berenice Liborio from Latino Student Initiatives explain.

On May 1st, a second silent student march for Black Lives Matter was held at ISU. ISU students Jared Ingram and Selma Sims, speak about why they support the Black Lives Matter movement and we hear sounds of the march and some thoughts and hashtags, and sign messages from the march.

May has been declared Bike to Work Month and May 11 - 18 is National Bike to Work Week. Dan DeGeest, a member of the Ames Bicycle Coalition, described the formation, mission, and the many events coming up to celebrate Bike To Work Month.

Ames Bicycle Coalition will partner with KHOI on May 22, Friday 6:00 – 8:00 PM for Cycle Cinema Night. Bikers will meet at the fountain in front of the Memorial Union on campus for a relaxed after school/work bike ride through the neighborhoods, ending up at 7:00 PM at the KHOI station in Downtown, where there will be a screening of a variety of informational short films on examples of liveable streets from all over the country. Short films by Street Films. After the films, there will be discussion with city officials on how a city can be accessible by all transportation types. Join the ride, the film, or both!
