About Fender Bender
Fender Bender is a monthly night of bicycle education and training by and for self-identified women, transgendered individuals, and members of the genderqueer community in Detroit, Michigan. It currently takes place at The Cass Corridor Commons – 4605 Cass Ave Detroit 48209, right in the heart of the Cass Corridor. We are in the process of looking for and renting our own space. If you have a space that you are interested in donating or leasing to us, please let us know!
Our goal is to provide a safe space for women and people of marginalized gender identities to learn about and work on bikes in an inclusive and supportive atmosphere. In conjunction, we aim to provide a forum for discussion and resources for the ongoing work which must be done to address oppressive gender stereotypes, and all forms of oppression across the spectrum of our daily lives.
Fender Bender will continue to grow as our community’s needs increase. Our ultimate goal is to provide our very own community space which not only includes our current bicycle programming, but also additional community resources and services for people of all genders (although still providing dedicated days for women, trans and genderqueer people, in keeping with our dedication to safe space) who simply need assistance and asylum from the challenges of urban life in Detroit. This would include workshops on self-defense, public health, family planning, an alternative library, youth programming, technology resources, arts education, community resources for seniors, parents, people with disabilities etc. The possibilities keep growing. If you have any ideas to share, skills to offer, time, tools, or money to donate, please let us know and we will be happy to discuss any details or ideas with you.
