Later this month, students will be returning to Digital Harbor High School. Before their
summer break, some students took to heart their teacher's end-of-year
assignment to find a way to tackle the problem of poverty in Baltimore City.
One student wrote an essay on how bike lanes would help poor people by
allowing them safe, inexpensive, reliable transportation. Her idea grew into a video
and a petition. Light Street Cycles loaned the students the bikes and helmets,
and they put this video together.
"Please watch the video and sign their petition," said Penny Troutner. "Things may be in a
mess, but the next generation is going to try to straighten it out."
