Mission Statement

PEDS is a non-profit advocacy group dedicated to making metro Atlanta safe and accessible for all pedestrians.

* change community attitudes to favor pedestrians,
* increase walking and other pedestrian activity,
* ensure the design of pedestrian-oriented communities,
* advance the equitable use of transportation funds, and
* reduce the risk to pedestrians of injury and death.
