Chainbreaker is a membership-led economic and environmental justice organization. We engage in community organizing to realize our mission, which is to expand access to affordable transportation and support economically and ecologically sustainable communities for low-income people. Since being founded in 2004 we’ve grown from a loose-knit group into a powerful community organization with nearly 700 members. Through our Bicycle Resource Center, we’ve distributed over 3,500 bikes to people who would otherwise have been unable to afford one and our organizing work has contributed to a thriving movement for civil rights and environmental justice in Santa Fe and around the country.
