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

Our priorities during the COVID-19 crisis

As we adjust our priorities in these uncertain times, we think it’s key to focus on people with essential jobs--the backbone of our society who so often get overlooked or taken for granted--and their transportation needs. Here are some ways we’re aligning our work with the urgent needs in our city.

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...

    Remove Police Enforcement from Vison Zero

    Editor’s note: Recently we echoed what many Black and Brown leaders in the mobility sector have been saying for years: there is no mobility justice without racial justice. The post below was written by multiple staff members and partners and is part of an ongoing series of statements, media, policy changes, and actions our organization is taking with the goals of rooting out white supremacy and systemic racism from our organization and from transportation and to advocate anti-racist policies.  Traffic stops make our streets less safe for Black, Brown, Immigrant, and Indigenous communities. Today we sent a letter to Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms calling on the City of Atlanta’s Department of Transportation Vision Zero program to remove police enforcement as a traffic safety tool. This is a collaborative effort of PEDS, Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, Georgia STAND-Up, and TransFormation Alliance. Act now to call on the City of Atlanta to remove police enforcement as a traffic safety tool.
