Maryann Aguirre was born and raised in Boyle Heights and is the daughter of Mexican immigrants. As a young mother at the age of 17 with little to no access to a vehicle she was no stranger to multi-modal transportation. Maryann joined the all women of color bicycle collective, Ovarian Psycos in 2011 and during her five years as an active core member she centered much of her work and passion around women of color on bicycles as an alternative method of transportation and a tool for social change. Maryann joined MCM in 2014 as a Program Specialist and through her involvement she has developed and led innovative community-based campaigns, bike rides and programs that centers women, people-of-color and low-income communities in public planning processes focused on bicycle education, street safety and land use. She has engaged in several local and national projects and conferences and has been invited several times to present at the National Bike Summit in Washington, DC to discuss the impact of bicycle facilities on housing affordability and women-of-color’s roles in leading inclusive and accessible bicycle advocacy. As the new Communications and Project Analyst Maryann will be supporting the growth of MCM programs and policy work and share this through various communication platforms.
