SAFE PASSAGE SENIOR
Safe Passage Senior works to increase safety and perception of safety for seniors in the Tenderloin, as well as create opportunities for seniors to get outside and get active!
On Thursday, May 30, Yellow Brick Road Awards took place at Boeddeker Park.

Additional awards were also given to the YMCA and Boys & Girls Club. Special thanks to Tenderloin Station for co-hosting this event!

On Tuesday, November 27, TLCBD Safe Passage received commendation from Supervisor Jane Kim at the Board of Supervisors meeting at City Hall. This special honor served as another great moment on the TLCBD Safe Passage’s 10 year timeline and a chance to thank everyone involved, especially the Tenderloin residents who are the heart & soul of this program. Check out the video and photos.
Here are some photos from the TLCBD Safe Passage Ten Year Anniversary Party at Tenderloin’s PianoFight. The party served as a momentous occasion to thank our many Safe Passage Corner Captains, show off some karaoke skills (shout out to Supervisor Jane Kim and incoming D6 Supervisor Matt Haney for the duet!) and recognize the program’s founders, funders, and everyone in between.
The party also marked the start of our fundraising efforts for the next 10 years. Donate here, every bit helps to expand and continue this vital neighborhood work.
Proposals to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety in the Tenderloin and SoMa neighborhoods will be considered by the SFMTA Board of Directors today as part of the city’s plan to reduce traffic-related deaths.
The meeting comes just under two months after a pedestrian was killed in an unsolved hit-and-run incident near the intersection of Turk and Taylor streets, one of the critical areas targeted by the Safer Taylor Street Project. And according to SFMTA, the corridor targeted by the 6th Street Pedestrian Safety Project sees pedestrians struck by vehicles once every 16 days on average. Read the full article on the Hoodline.
