About ThreadATL

What we’re doing

ThreadATL is a non-profit advocacy organization that aims to influence policy around planning and design decisions in the City of Atlanta toward a greater focus on good urbanism, while encouraging residents to take Jane Jacobs’ advice and “get into the thick of the planning job” in their own communities.

Strategic Plan

Our current strategic plan was developed under the guidance of Katie Butler, who created this (wonderful) document. We refer to it regularly to guide our efforts.
