Come out and represent the Beltline4All campaign during the lantern parade this Saturday! We are meeting at the Krog Street Market and then will march in the parade. We made lanterns to spread our message against the gentrification caused by the Beltline and our demand of housing for all. Let's show the Beltline and the City that we won't allow gentrification and displacement to continue!

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.
