Families for Safe Streets Nashville

Three distinct images of streets that lack sidewalks and or pedestrian infrastructure.

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.

The group meets monthly (virtually for now) on the 4th Monday of every month. 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. If you have any questions please call or text Brenda Pérez at 615-510-7386 or sign up for our monthly calls at bit.ly/meetfss

Families for Safe Streets is a chapter of a national organization that originated in New York City. 

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, visit our Pedestrian Memorials page here
