RIDE FOR RACIAL RESTORATION was born from a friendship between Jamaal Johnson, program mentor at HOPE Farm, and Jeff Kramer. Jamaal and Jeff met at church and although they came from very different backgrounds and have different stories, they bonded quickly.
During the summer of Covid quarantine in 2020, Jamaal got his first road bike, and the two friends began riding together. With racial tensions rising last year, they would often discuss many of these issues as they rode together down Texas roads.
Through their many conversations, they realized they didn’t always see things the same way, but they both understood that they were better for it. As they shared their experiences and beliefs with one another, their friendship grew, and they felt a growing sense that they needed to do something in response to the growing racial tension in the country. They looked at their community and thought the worst thing they could do was nothing, so they decided to DO SOMETHING.
That something was the beginning of RRR. They hope to inspire action toward racial healing in their community. The ride will benefit Hope Farm in Fort Worth. THEIR MISSION is to inspire action towards racial restoration by engaging relationally in our communities.
RIDE WITH THEM in the Hotter ‘N Hell bike ride in Wichita Falls, Texas on Saturday August 28, 2021 and help raise support for Hope Farm.
