Our 2018 Active Transportation Summit scholarship winner, Alexa Jakusovszky, will tell us about her experience in Washington DC.

Lex grew up in the mountains of Colorado and moved to Portland to attend Lewis & Clark College. While earning a degree in international affairs, Lex fell in love with the bike culture and community of Portland. She is a regular Pedalpalooza participant and a former Portland bicycle tour guide. Most recently she worked as a legislative aide for State Representative Karin Power, where she interacted closely with transportation policy and advocated for the prioritization of Safe Routes to School funding. Lex is interested in the major social role bikes have played throughout time and specifically their advancement of women’s liberation. This led her to get involved in the Portland Society early in 2018. She is deeply drawn to equity and is excited to continue advocating for a safe, truly accessible mix of transportation in our state.
