Since its inception, C.C.S.R.O.C. has worked with S.R.O. tenants and community members to improve pedestrian safety. Our activities have included working with San Francisco’s County Transit Authority (C.TA.) to conduct outreach for the county’s Early Action Program. We also received a grant from the C.T.A. that funded our tenant organizers’ efforts to gather 400 pedestrian safety surveys and held focus groups within the Tenderloin and South of Marker (SoMA) to identify pedestrian safety needs/issues within the Tenderloin and SoMA. We worked with District Six supervisor Jane Kim’s office to bring about a pilot project for traffic calming measures on 6th street. We partnered with WALK SF and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition to advocate for Vision Zero and participated in multiple press conferences and hearings at City Hall in response to pedestrian fatalities in the Tenderloin and SoMA. In addition, C.C.S.R.O.C. partnered with the following community based organization to work on pedestrian safety in the Tenderloin and SoMA: S.F. Municipal Transit Authority, and San Francisco Planning Department’s Walk First program.
