Join us Saturday June 16th and 17th from 12-3pm to collect signatures for our #Beltline4all campaign. We will be right off the Beltline at the Forward Warrior event. We will have volunteers with tall #Beltline4all displays and clipboards to collect signatures. With your help we can collect thousands of signatures to pressure city officials to meaningfully invest in affordable housing that truly meets communitiy needs along the footprint of the Beltline. Below is a link to the online petition which you can sign and share.
The BeltLine development is nearly half done, and its legacy is still up in the air.
We need Development not Displacement. It is unconscionable for a city with resources as great as Atlanta’s to stand by and allow the continued extraction of wealth from historically marginalized communities. The City must prioritize human rights and stop funding destructive mega developments with our tax dollars. Renters and low-income homeowners must receive more legal protections and support.
We can move forward together and build more just and livable communities. We can heed the warning call of already gentrifying communities to do better for the people living there now and build a BeltLine for All. Gentrification is not inevitable. It is a matter of political will and taking a stand for housing justice.
