2. Street Committees - Advocacy in Action
Community advocates from High-Injury Network corridors are actively working to develop community-based, design-driven safety changes. In 2021 we formed two street committees - Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway and Moreland Avenue. Committee members are residents and community members of each corridor working to advance the mobility, safety, equity, and affordability principles of the ONE Atlanta Strategic Transportation Plan. Ten street committee members completed our safe streets training in the fall of 2020. Each committee is working in their respective communities to introduce their work and build a coalition of support for safety recommendations.

3. Atlanta Families for Safe Streets - Families in the Fight
Atlanta Families for Safe Streets (AFSS) is a local chapter of the national Families for Safe Streets organization. Families for Safe Streets connects individuals who have lost loved ones or have been injured in a crash with support and training to use their experiences to advocate for change. The Atlanta chapter was put on hold during covid-19 and has not been reactivated yet - we are fundraising to be able to fully staff and support this program.Sign up
