The Providence Streets Coalition is an alliance of 41 community organizations, local businesses, schools, neighborhood associations, and thousands of engaged individuals advocating for people-friendly streets in Providence. We support providing safer streets, more transportation choices, and policies that advance mobility justice to improve safety, equity, sustainability, prosperity, health, and quality-of-life in our city and region.

Join us as an Organizational Member! 

Members are actively involved in the Coalition and dedicate some of their time, energy, and expertise to ensuring voices in their communities are engaged in the process of getting Providence moving on streets built to share. Email Liza if interested in becoming a member.

When called upon, Coalition members will be vocal proponents of rebuilding our roads in ways that improve health equity, the local economy, our neighborhoods’ quality of life, the resilience of our local environment, and the safety of all people using the streets.
