Support our work

We’re trying to stop an epidemic.

Central Texas Families for Safe Streets is run by and for families who have directly suffered from traffic violence, and don’t want other families to suffer the way ours have. As part of Vision Zero Texas and their broader work on this epidemic across the state, Farm&City provides staffing and support for CTFSS members and the chapter so that our members are respected, effective, and gaining ground in ending this epidemic across the entire Austin region.

We are moving forward with a soft launch of the CTFSS chapter, although we need about $50,000 in financial support this year to move forward with supporting CTFSS as a new chapter as planned. Please consider giving a personally meaningful contribution to help build this movement and continue progress in ending traffic deaths and serious injuries in the Austin region.

There are several ways to support CTFSS:

Some of the leaders of CTFSS are heading to NYC for the Vision Zero Cities conference and will be participating in the Families for Safe Streets 5K. Half of all donations made through our team page, or one of our member pages will support the national movement and half will come directly to support our effort to build staffing support for Central Texas Families for Safe Streets.
