Contact-Free Community Resource Day - Oakland Drive, September 26, 11am - 4pm

On Saturday, September 26, 2020, Georgia STAND-UP (STAND-UP) and The Atlanta Department of Transportation (ATLDOT), in partnership with TransFormation Alliance (TFA) and the Oakland City Community Organization, will hold a pop-up Contact-Free Community Resource Day. This event will take place from 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. in the Oakland City Neighborhood on Oakland Drive between Campbellton Road and Avon Avenue.

The purpose of this pop-up is to share public health information, provide Covid-19 testing, and distribute other important community resources during this international health pandemic. Residents will also have an opportunity to engage with ATLDOT staff to discuss transportation safety needs.

This pop-up will provide FREE Covid-19 testing, grocery giveaways, face masks, easy voter registration, and other community information.

Community organizations are encouraged to provide additional resources for this pop-up. To reserve a table for your organization, please contact Ariel Singleton at: arielsingleton@georgiastandup.org.

With traffic-calming tactics such as signs and barricades, ATLDOT will create safe spaces along the side of the road for information-sharing activities. In addition, residents will receive community identification tags for their vehicles; however, street access will not be restricted solely to community members.

What this program will not include:

  • Music/Performances
  • Movie showings
  • Food trucks
  • Seating (other than as needed for people with disabilities)
  • Vending/Sale of merchandise
  • Free giveaways (unless directly supporting one of the approved activities)
