CONNECT - LEARN - SHARE
Neighbors are often the most effective advocates for safe streets in communities. The assets community members bring can make all the difference when it comes to determining policy and securing resources. It is imperative that there are deliberate spaces for you - as leaders - to share tools and enrich knowledge.
That’s why the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition created the Community Advocates for Safe Streets program: to provide the deliberate space needed for neighborhood transportation proponents to connect, share information, and learn from each other, with the intent of transferring gained knowledge into the communities they serve.
The goal is to develop a sustainable and effective network of advocates from neighborhoods in every City Council district, prioritizing communities in the High Injury Network. There are two ways you can get involved in the Community Advocates for Safe Streets program:
Join a people-led, safe streets committee for your corridor. Committees will consist of Atlanta residents, small business owners, and community members who live or work along one of these corridors. Together you will learn, share ideas, and influence government decisions about your corridor by recommending safety interventions that serve you and your neighbors best.
The enrollment period for the Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway Street Committee is closed. Please consider staying or getting involved with our larger Community Advocates Network. From this larger network, you will network and form new street committees.
