Mary Beth Kelly, ACSW, serves on the Board of Directors and the Advisory Council of Transportation Alternatives and is a co-founder of Families for Safe Streets.
In June of 2006, Mary Beth with her husband, Dr. Carl Henry Nacht were cycling together — as they had done for thirty-five years — when Henry was hit in the crosswalk by a tow truck. He died several days later from his injuries.
Immediately following his death, she knocked on TA’s door — the only organization in NYC addressing traffic violence. With them she worked to channel rage and grief into advocacy and activism. Her vision, like TA’s, is cities reclaimed from the domination of the automobile for walking, biking, and public transportation.
