DAVID LOSA'S MASI BIKE
David rides his journey of Love, working his way slowly towards DC. His plan is to arrive in time for the National Journey for Justice March on August 13th.
David's trying to call attention to the plight of people like his little brother Doug, an inmate in a California prison. Doug is serving a 26 years-to-life sentence for a petty drug offense involving - literally - no more than the residue of methamphetamine found in a plastic bag: An 'immeasurable amount' with which to deprive a young man of the rest of his life. A senseless sentence, a life thrown away - yet another example of America's failed "war on drugs".
The extraordinary thing about David's journey is that David is only traveling 100 miles per day - Because he's on a bicycle!
When David heard about the Journey for Justice March on DC he was so inspired that he decided to do more than simply show up for the march: David decided to design his own personal fundraising and media journey by biking 3,000 miles seeking justice for Doug.
Sometimes the only answer to despair is to commit an extraordinary act of bravery, strength, and generosity.
Please commit an extraordinary act of your own: Promote David's "Ride for Justice", welcome him if his schedule takes him through your town, and meet David in DC, Lafayette Park at 9AM on August 13th, 2005.

"David's journey is just one journey among the thousands of journeys that will be threads brought together in Washington this August. From California, that journey will find its strongest representation in FACTS' family members and friends. In addition to the logistics and cost of David's ride, FACTS will send a strong contingent to Washington in August, and those who don't travel will be staging Journey for Justice Events throughout California." ~Donna J.
