BeltLine4All: 2nd Canvassing Day in Ashview

May 25, 2019 @ 11:30 am – 2:00 pm America/New York Timezone
Dean Rusk Park Lake

Come knock on doors with us for our second day canvassing in Ashview and have conversations about the BeltLine for All campaign! We will be collecting signatures for our BeltLine for All petition and offering folks “House NOT For Sale” signs to let developers know that they will not be moved out of their community. Meeting at Dean Rusk Park at the corner of Sells Ave SW and Lawton St SW. Please arrive at 11:30am.

We will give pairs of volunteers canvassing routes and all the information you need to feel good talking to folks about the BeltLine. Never canvassed before? We’ll show you the ropes before we get started! *If you plan to drive a car to get there, let us know – that will be helpful for us!*

With your help we can collect thousands of signatures to pressure city officials to meaningfully invest in affordable housing that truly meets community needs along the footprint of the Beltline. SIGN and SHARE the petition:!
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.

Will you stand with us?
