For Immediate Release
March 26, 2019
House of Representatives Introduced a Resolution Addressing Motorcyclist Profiling 

 Today champions of the motorcyclist community in the House of  Representatives introduced a resolution addressing motorcyclist  profiling. The resolution (H. Res. 255) has three key points:

(1) promoting increased public awareness on the issue of motorcyclist profiling;
 (2) encouraging collaboration and communication with the motorcycle  community and law enforcement to engage in efforts to end motorcycle  profiling; and
(3) urging State law enforcement officials to include  statements condemning motorcyclist profiling in written policies and  training materials.

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF)  applauds Congressman Walberg (R-MI), Congressman Peterson (D-MN),  Congressman Burgess (R-TX) and Congressman Pocan (D-WI) for introducing  this bipartisan resolution in the House of Representatives. These four  Members of Congress introduced an identical bill in the last Congress  which garnered 37 cosponsors but unfortunately failed to reach the House  floor for a vote. 

While the previous effort in the House  failed, the United States Senate, in December 2018 passed an identical  resolution regarding motorcyclist profiling. The MRF was proud to take a  leading role in passing this Senate anti-profiling resolution. The  United States Senate is now on record calling for the end of  motorcyclist profiling. 

The MRF is committed to working with the  state motorcycle rights organizations (SMROs), coalitions, COC’s, the  Motorcycle Profiling Project (MPP), the National Council of Clubs  (NCOC), the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM), and independent  riders to advance H. Res. 255. 

President of the MRF, Kirk  ‘Hardtail’ Willard, stated “We once again thank Congressmen Walberg,  Peterson, Burgess and Pocan for their leadership on this important  issue. Motorcyclists in every state are impacted by profiling and we  appreciate these Congressmen bringing the issue before the House of  Representatives.”

To ask your U.S. House of Representative to cosponsor H. Res. 255, please take action at the link below:

Toy Run renamed in memory of longtime leader

NHMRO Joanne Packard Memorial Toy Run

 

The New Hampshire Motorcyclists Rights Organization is naming  its annual Toy Run in memory of a Londonderry woman who helped start  the event and ran it for decades.

Joanne Packard died in  September, one week after hundreds of motorcyclists rode from Concord to  Manchester loaded with toys to donate to the New Hampshire Union Leader  Santa Fund for The Salvation Army for the 36th straight year.

Fittingly,  the New Hampshire Motorcyclists Rights Organization (NHMRO) board of  directors voted to attach Packard’s name to the cause she loved so  dearly.

“We  just felt it was the right thing to do because she was so instrumental  in starting it and making it what it has become,” said Traci Beaurivage,  NHMRO president.

So next fall when hundreds of bikers gather in  Concord for the annual drive to Manchester, they’ll be taking part in  the Joanne Packard Memorial Toy Run. “It’s still our (NHMRO) toy run,  but we want it named after Joanne.”

The move had wide support from  anyone who knew Packard, whose husband, Sherm, was a founding member of  NHMRO. He was touched to learn of the gesture.

“She was just that  type of a person. She wanted to help other people and make sure that no  kid went without toys at Christmas,” Sherm Packard said Monday of his  late wife.

Packard, who has served 14 terms in the New Hampshire  House of Representatives, said the toy run was one of many causes his  wife of 52 years held dearly. She also served on the board of directors  for a local soup kitchen for nine years and contributed whenever or  whatever she could to many other causes.

“She was just an  absolutely amazing person when it came to trying to do everything she  could to help those that were a little less fortunate than we were,”  Packard said. “It wasn’t just kids. Obviously she loved kids and wanted  to do everything she could to make sure kids were happy, but she just  wanted to help people.”

Although he gets the credit, Packard said  Joanne was also instrumental in establishing NHMRO; she got the idea for  the toy run after hearing of similar events in other states.

“It  started a little bit small, but then it blossomed into a major event  every year in the state of New Hampshire,” Packard said.

In years  when the weather has cooperated, Packard said as many as 1,000 bikers  would take part in the toy run, each of them toting stuffed animals,  board games or other gifts for kids that would be given to the Salvation  Army when the ride ended in the Union Leader parking lot.

“I know  it’s been a major help to the Salvation Army and their toy drive,”  Packard said. “We’ve collected a lot of toys over the years for needy  kids in the state of New Hampshire.”

Each year, the Salvation Army  would load a trailer with a stash of toys to be distributed through the  Santa Fund closer to Christmas.

Organizing  the ride could be time-consuming and challenging, but Packard said his  wife always felt it was worthwhile when wave after wave of bikes entered  the parking lot and the riders lined up with arms full of toys.

“She  had been involved with it from the whole time it was in existence and  she had literally run it for over 20 years,” he said. “Every time it was  over, she was just so happy that so many people showed up and so many  people donated toys to help the kids.”

Beaurivage said NHRMO is  also donating about $4,000 in cash raised at this year’s toy run to the  Salvation Army in memory of Joanne Packard.

Packard, who died  Sept. 16 at Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Mass., started turning over the  toy run organization duties a few years ago.

Betty Rock, her successor, said Joanne was a tremendous help and mentor whose name deserves to be part of the toy run.

“She  would be thrilled. A wonderful woman — absolutely wonderful woman.  Can’t say anything bad about her. She was fantastic to work with,” Rock  said.

Tell Congress This IS NOT TRUE & End Motorcycle Profiling

 

We're Bikers, Not Criminals.

However,  Hollywood and the media has made these two words synonymous. If you own  a Harley, wear a patch and ride in a group, it is the equivalent of  putting a target on your back. 

We can help put a stop to this by making this issue a national discussion. 

Do  Your Part - Tell Your Elected Officials to Support Anti-Profiling  Legislation. Recent activity has opened  the door to a possibility for  an up or down vote by the end of the year. But it won't happen without your help.

Motorcycle Profiling Project

What is the Motorcycle Profiling Project?

Motorcycle Profiling Project

 The Motorcycle Profiling Project (MPP) is dedicated to the grassroots  effort to pass laws addressing profiling and discrimination. The MPP is  not intended to replace other organizations. Rather, the project is  intended to coordinate and unify the different elements and  organizations in each state towards this common goal, including the  Confederations and Coalitions of Clubs, US Defenders, C.O.I.R., ABATE,  MMA, NCOM, MRF, AMA and the many smaller MRO’s that exist around the  country. 


 What do the Motorcycle Profiling Project’s services cost?   The Motorcycle Profiling Project offers all of its services to the  motorcycling community FREE of charge.  If an individual or organization  sees value in the project then contributions are highly appreciated.  The project relies on these contributions as the sole means of covering  expenses and compensation for work performed. The more support the  project receives, the more support the project can provide the  motorcycling community.As the movement to pass profiling laws  accelerates, so has the time demands and workload. A project of this  magnitude entails office expenses, travel, and time. So if you think the  project is valuable, organize a benefit and make a contribution.Contributions  go directly to the The Motorcycle Profiling Project. Contributions are  NOT Tax deductible. Online contributions can be made at  motorcycleprofilingproject.com or The Motorcycle Profiling Project on  Facebook. Contract based consulting is also available if a particular  state or community prefers a traditional and structured agreement. 

Who created the Motorcycle Profiling Project?

image156

 David “Double D” Devereaux, a motorcycle rights activist from  Washington State, and a leading advocate for laws addressing the issue  of motorcycle profiling in America. Double D spearheaded the effort in  Washington as spokesperson for the movement. Double D represents the  Washington State COC and US Defenders, NCOM Legislative Task Force, US  Defenders National Office, BOLT, and he is a member or supporter of  ABATE, the MRF, and the AMA.  Also offering assistance to the project  are Jeff “Twitch” Burns (activist, public records, media expert and  documentary filmmaker), Bill “Colt” Kaitz (activist that leads the  Maryland US Defenders), Donnie “Mr. Breeze” Landsman (activist,  independent advocate and legislative expert), along with many others.This  unified effort resulted in the first law addressing motorcycle  profiling in America. Importantly, Washington’s law passed through the  legislature unanimously and the same legislation is receiving support in  many other states. The Maryland COC/US Defenders and ABATE, working  with the Project, unanimously passed profiling legislation through their  Senate in 2015 and seems likely to pass the law through both chambers  in 2016. 

What services do the Motorcycle Profiling Project provide?

image157

   The Motorcycle Profiling Project is designed to help your state with  every step involved in the process of passing a law addressing the issue  of motorcycle profiling.
