Moving into the next gear

Charleston, SC — Bike Law and Charleston Moves have a long, shared history of multi-modal advocacy and are now pleased to jointly announce a new phase of our partnership. Starting in July, the Charleston Moves team will operate from donated office space within Bike Law SC’s headquarters at 57 Cannon Street.

Our organizations share the belief that when streets are safe for our most vulnerable, then they are truly equitable. Complete, safe streets are a justice issue; social, racial, economic and environmental justice is at the core of what we advocate for through transportation reform. Smart mobility planning enhances our safety, public health, economic vibrancy and land use practices, affecting every one of us in a deeply personal way.

Bike Law’s generous donation of space and resources has come at a time Charleston Moves needed it, and our co-location sets our two organizations on an even stronger path as we continue to work toward safe, connected and equitable infrastructure throughout the Charleston region. From current coalition organizing around an accessible North Bridge, to future critical mass rides when it is safe to gather again, to all of our grassroots and transportation justice partnerships in between, sharing space will only strengthen our vision of mobility inclusion and people powered progress.

Bike Law is a network of independent bicycle crash lawyers who share a common approach to the law and to helping cyclists. Bike Law’s goal is to be bicycle advocates as well as legal advocates, and to pursue cycling justice.

Charleston Moves is a nonprofit organization advocating for safe, connected and equitable infrastructure throughout Charleston County.

It improves the local economy. It creates opportunities for civic engagement. It means cleaner air and water, climate change mitigation, improved public health, and reduced traffic congestion.
