Born and raised in South Carolina, I’ve called the Charleston area home for over 20 years. I am an avid runner, cyclist, local entrepreneur, and mother to two young and very active boys. My initial interest in Charleston Moves derived from purely selfish desires to have safer cycling infrastructure to allow me to train and also have the option of using a bike for transportation. As I learned more about the organization, I recognized the broader need for their advocacy as Charleston Moves speaks up for all citizens who desire a right to the road on foot, bike, wheelchair and even mass transit. For my birthday month, I’m asking for donations to this awesome organization. I’m kicking it off with $100. Since we can’t have a big birthday party somewhere fun this year, can you give $10? Let’s make sure all Charlestonians have access to the roads in a safe and equitable way. 

Many in our area work in parts of Charleston where parking is price prohibitive, assuming they own a car, and the CARTA system does not always offer needed routes/schedules. Our roads should be for all Charleston citizens no matter their mode of transportation. Charleston Moves works tirelessly with local municipalities, state agencies and diverse stakeholders to ensure this is the case. They are at nearly every town/city council meeting, heading committees and subcommittees, conducting audits of areas where pedestrians are frequently vulnerable, and still have time to let the rest of the town know where all of these issues stand. I don’t know how 2 people manage to fit so much in, but they do and we all benefit from Katie and Savannah’s hard work. 

This year, the two biggest fundraisers for Charleston Moves were canceled due to the pandemic. While necessary, these cancellations result in a large funding deficit for the organization. We are trying to change that with a FREE online event and fundraiser where you can learn more, ask questions, and get updated on the latest and greatest info on improvements to cycling/pedestrian/transit infrastructure. Can you please help us fill that gap? Donate today and join us on November 12 for the fun!

Connect with Charleston Moves 2020

Thursday, November 12

6-7 pm 

Presented by Bike Law, Morrison Yard, Parker Capital Management, Raven Cliff Company + The BEND

** RSVP REQUIRED: click “RSVP | DONATE” at the top (donations optional) **


How Charlestonians get around is deeply personal — it influences how often we spend time with family and friends; the quality of food we eat; our ability to access healthcare; where we learn, work and play; and how we interact with our natural environment. These quality-of-life fundamentals all tie to reliable transportation choice, and we believe in people’s right to live their best lives, free from fear.

Please join us for Connect with Charleston Moves 2020! This virtual, livestream event will be an engaging look at this year's exciting multi-modal accomplishments, our current and upcoming priorities, and specific ways for you to take action to support our movement. We'll also have a live Q&A. 

We have missed you, and hope to see your faces on the screen, answer all of your questions and have some fun! 

Registration is free, but required to participate. If you sign up before October 12, you will receive a package in the mail with a schedule for the evening, handful of goodies, and advocacy toolkit. 

Connect with Charleston Moves 2020 will replace this year's Pedal & Panache, our annual fall fundraiser. Please consider donating (before and/or during the event) to help us keep on track during this difficult budget year. Donations of $50 or more will unlock tiers of newly-designed swag (no code needed to view) for you to choose from, so you can show off your commitment to safe streets in style. All items will be printed locally and mailed directly to you following the event — we'll cover shipping!

As a valued member of our community, we would love for you to join us on November 12. We are proud of our progress this year, and excited to bring you in on our upcoming priorities.
