Nearly 30,000 people live in the Tenderloin. Not counting all the people who have passed through or moved on, right now, in this moment, there are no less than 30,000 stories to be told about this neighborhood of 50 square blocks. There are stories of births and deaths, of falling in love and getting dumped, then drunk. There are stories about a church that has saved more than a few lives, and a bar full of glittered-up drag queens. These are the messages Temporal Cities is on a mission to share.

In a recent position paper, we noted the drug trade as the most frustrating and difficult issue affecting our community. We hear regularly from parents, merchants, and residents about these impacts. In recent years we’ve made strides and continue to push our safety efforts through our programs, including Cleaning, Safe Passage, Block Safety and the Camera Network, as well as through our partnerships, including with law enforcement, criminal justice, harm reduction, health workers and city partners. TLCBD is dedicated to leading the evolution of the Tenderloin into a vibrant community for ALL. Read Heather Knight’s column more on SF Chronicle here.
