About this Speaker

After her 12-year-old son Sammy was killed in 2013, Amy Cohen joined with others and helped found Families for Safe Streets (FSS). FSS confronts traffic violence by advocating for life-saving changes and providing support to those personally affected by crashes in our communities. All of its members have been injured or lost loved ones in this preventable epidemic. This burgeoning national movement started in NYC where the founding chapter had numerous legislative successes including lowering the speed limit, getting the nation’s largest speed safety camera program, passing legislation implementing a master plan redesigning streets, and more. These victories prompted others across the country to also start chapters in their community —elevating the demands for local, statewide, and national legislative and policy changes.
