We are residents of the Metro Atlanta area. We’re a mix of long-time residents and newcomers, renters and homeowners, business owners and employees, families and individuals, citizens and immigrants, commuters, bus riders, cyclists and pedestrians. Read more about our values.
We see friends, family, and coworkers being priced out of our area. We see sprawl consume acres of wilderness and increase the number of cars on the road. But we know there is an alternative. We want Atlanta to be an affordable and inclusive community, one in which new residents can thrive and legacy residents have the ability to age in place with dignity.
