|Auto-Free D.C. was a grass roots organization working to transform the metropolitan region's transportation system. We advocated elimination of the massive subsidies that encourage automobile use and their redirection to fund sustainable transportation projects: public transit, bicycling and pedestrian facilities. We were engaged in the fight against further development of the automobile infrastructure, especially new roads, highway expansions, and car garages.||
Towards these ends, AFDC sought to raise public awareness of the enormous social, economic, and environmental costs of driving. We conducted education campaigns, lobbied local elected officials and policy-makers, and took direct action when necessary.
Auto-Free D.C. believed that we must end our forced dependence on the automobile as a precondition for achieving an environmentally sustainable, equitable, and livable community.
