Description
Collection consists of flyers, posters and other ephemera related to the bike messenger community in San Francisco.
Background
Chris Stevens was a San Francisco Bike Messenger Association (SFBMA) member and active messenger (bike and car) from 2000-2013, and volunteer organizer for the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) in 2000-2001. Chris co-founded independent messenger company Docket Rocket in 2001 after his employer Express Network Inc. (ENI) closed and fired all employees in 2001, rather than allowing them to vote in a scheduled union election under the auspices of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Chris closed Docket Rocket in 2014 and moved to Seattle to become a deckhand with Washington State Ferries, and is currently a member of ILWU's maritime division, the Inlandboatmen's Union (IBU).
