BENEFITING: American Jewish World Service
ORGANIZER: American Jewish World Service
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
I'm biking 40 miles around New York's five boroughs on May 1st to support American Jewish World Service. We're calling it "Bike for Rights" because this organization is at the forefront in supporting human rights and ending poverty in the developing world. It is the first and only Jewish organization dedicated solely to this purpose. Through philanthropy and advocacy, it addresses some of the gravest global problems of our time—genocide, AIDS, violence against women and girls, hatred of LGBT people, and the horrific consequences of natural and human-made disasters.
