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...

The joy of freely walking, playing, biking, wheeling, scooting, or skating without the danger of passing cars lets people experience the full potential of our streets — safe, enjoyable active transportation corridors that spontaneously transform into pop-up meeting spaces, playgrounds, dance parties, or ballfields.
