About Families for Safe Streets

Families for Safe Streets (FSS) Nashville is a group for people who have lost loved ones while walking or biking in Nashville and for those that have been injured in a crash as a pedestrian or bicycle rider. The group is designed to provide a community of support for victims and loved ones. Families for Safe Streets is a chapter of a national organization that originated in New York City.

We Meet Every Month

Our group meets monthly (virtually for now). We are here for peer support and to use our personal stories to advocate for change in our city. If you have been injured in a traffic crash or have lost a loved one while walking or biking, we invite you to join us.

Contact [email protected] for more information about our monthly meeting or register for the next virtual Zoom meeting here.

Installing Pedestrian Memorials

We have begun installing pedestrian memorials for those walking that have died in a car crash. If you are curious to learn more about the memorials, or you would like to request one be placed in Nashville to honor a pedestrian victim, contact [email protected] For more information visit our Pedestrian Memorials page here
