our guiding principles - we believe in: sustainable transportation options that are as  accessible, prevalent, and respected as driving  is today social and racial justice as outlined by The  Untokening’s Principles of Mobility Justice. We are  committed to building a transportation system that  ensures access to opportunity through investments  that repair the harmful effects of institutional racism  and foster an inclusive community collaboration and are committed to working  collectively with and in service to community accountability and are committed to transparency  and openness to ideas, feedback, and growth that  build trust effectiveness and are committed to forethought,  adaptability, persistence, and resourcefulness to  foster progress

We cannot have mobility justice without racial justice. We are an organization dedicated to reclaiming Atlanta’s streets as safe, inclusive, and thriving spaces for people to ride, walk, and roll. We talk a lot about re-envisioning streets as inclusive public spaces. Seeing our streets militarized is the antithesis of what public space should be about. Safe streets involve more than bike lanes and traffic calming. They are streets where everyone is free from persecution and violence. Safety and inclusivity mean Black people can walk our streets without fearing an assault on their lives or their dignity. Read more...

    Finally, DeKalb Ave Phase 1: reviewing the design and looking ahead

    Wave goodbye to the reversible lane and pothole-riddled pavement that represent DeKalb Ave today, because the street is finally getting some love. Along with new pavement comes a redesign.  Photo: current conditions on DeKalb Ave, pre-redesign and construction. While the newly designed street won’t include 100% of what residents, neighborhood organizations, active transportation commuters, or elected officials wanted, it should enhance the safety and wellbeing of people living on DeKalb Ave as well as those who use it to commute or visit its small businesses.

    #RespectCacade: Call the Atlanta City Council Transportation Committee TODAY to urge agencies to address safety issues on Cascade Avenue

    We all know the intersection at Cascade Avenue and Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard is dangerous. It's been that way for decades. On Wednesday, August 25, a woman lost her life there: Woman killed after car goes off overpass, onto Atlanta BeltLine below via WSBTV.com: "The witness said the woman had just left the parking lot of a shopping center nearby when the driver went through the fence along Ralph David Abernathy and fell on the Atlanta BeltLine below." Steve Gehlbach of WSB via Twitter: "Witness thinks she may have been trying to avoid getting hit by another car as left Kroger parking lot next door." This is one more in a long list of crashes on this corridor that have hurt or killed people making ordinary, everyday trips to the grocery store, school, and work. We didn’t need another example of why it's so critical for the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), Atlanta Department of Transportation (ATLDOT), and the Atlanta BeltLine to collaborate with residents to fix this intersection and the adjacent streets.
