About

Empact Communities is a grassroots bike advocacy program that seeks to empower, engage and encourage more Long Beach residents, particularly in underserved communities, to use the bicycle as a tool to improve their overall quality of life. Our mission is to provide valuable services and create a safe space where residents are empowered to positively impact and improve their personal health, economy, environment, neighborhood, and safety, while benefiting the communities in which they live. Empact Communities provides free bike related services so community members are able to use bikes for active living, transportation to and from work or school, saving money, leaving a smaller footprint, and having fun while connecting with their community. Our goal is to reduce obesity, increase physical activity, push for equitable resources, and create advocates in the underserved communities of Long Beach.
