About


How we advance the region

 

Advance Atlanta is partnering with stakeholders across the region focusing on three mechanisms for advancement: coalition building, knowledge sharing, and mobilization.

Coalition Building

Goal: Connect and unite individuals, organizations, and businesses within and across each region. 

Tactics: Community-based leaders and area captains facilitate networking opportunities to brainstorm and develop collective efforts to enhance transportation access.  Sample advocacy events include town halls, breakfasts, happy hours, and panel discussions. 

Knowledge Sharing

Goal: Inform constituents with knowledge on current, future, and potential transit-related projects, and empower stakeholders with methods and avenues to participate in the development process. 

Tactics: Digital communication (email campaigns, newsletters, social media campaigns, regional planning calendars, online forums, online directories) on important transportation meetings, proposals, projects, and decisions ensure transparency regarding transit updates and encourage active participation by community members.  

Mobilization

Goal:  Assemble coalitions of informed stakeholders to increase awareness of transit opportunities, advocate development, and activate advancement. 

Tactics: Direct advocacy (connecting constituents with elected officials), grassroots advocacy (hosting public forms, demonstrations, events), and earned media (op-eds, social strategies, story-telling) create a compelling case for a unified regional transit system.
