Development Assistant

school, to the park – anywhere – you shouldn’t be risking your life by simply
crossing the street. But every day an average of three people are hit while
walking in San Francisco.

Walk SF exists to change this. Every day, we push for solutions to make our
streets dramatically safer for everyone, of every age and ability. We believe San

economic, and environmental benefits to our city.
