Event Description

Ride to support Dr. King’s vision for a Beloved Community through West Side Future Fund’s efforts to revitalize and empower Atlanta’s Historic Westside!

Why Ride for the Westside?

An influx of jobs and people are returning to the heart of Atlanta, bringing new life to an area rich in cultural history but long neglected due to systemic racism. This economic growth drives up the price of housing and threatens to displace legacy Westside residents who are often low-wage earners. If left unchecked, the trend of gentrification will continue, replacing lifetime residents with a higher- wage majority white population.

Join friends, neighbors and colleagues as they/we ride to disrupt the cycle of poverty and empower the potential of our neighbors who call the Westside home. With your support Atlanta’s Westside, a neighborhood rich in civil rights history, can become a national model for racial equity and justice.
