Atlanta Families for Safe Streets

Atlanta Families for Safe Streets is part of a national movement to turn families’ stories of preventable tragedy into advocacy efforts for safer streets for all. 

Nationally, Families for Safe Streets (FSS) confronts the epidemic of traffic violence by advocating for life-saving changes and providing support to those impacted by crashes. 

Here in Atlanta, we organize family members and those involved in crashes to advocate for policies and infrastructure projects to prevent crashes and save lives. 

Get involved

Have you been injured or lost a loved one in a fatal traffic crash? We’d like to hear from you. Each year we gather stories from loved ones to share the lives of those lost.
