This weekend on Auto Trends with Olivia Fonseca and Joe Ayala, who are members of Sacramento Lowrider Commission, joins us to talk about the history and lifestyle of the lowrider culture. 

We'll also explore how the California-based advocacy organization is helping to infuse lowrider electric vehicle education in the school system. 

More importantly, we'll discuss the instrumental role this group played in reversing discriminatory cruising polices targeting Hispanic and Latino communities throughout the state of California. In fact, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill on Saturday, October 14 lifting the restriction on lowriding cruising that was enacted in the 1950s.
