Give to Streetsblog Today and Help Us Deliver Your Livable Streets News

The Streetsblog spring pledge drive got off to a strong start in its first week — thanks to everyone who donated and moved us toward our goal of 400 donations by June 1. Keep the momentum going and make a tax-deductible gift today to media that matters to livable streets in San Francisco.

Your contributions supply the resources we need to write and report about the city’s pressing street safety and transit issues. One of our generous contributors last week, James Dashe, said he gave to Streetsblog SF because “nobody else provides the sort of comprehensive coverage of these issues as you do.”

If you value Streetsblog’s in-depth coverage of San Francisco transportation — and how we hold civic leaders accountable for making our streets safer — please make a donation today.

San Francisco is starting to see real changes from law enforcement agencies, which are backing up the Vision Zero rhetoric with policy changes, and we need to keep on fighting for the expansion of bikeways and implementation of the Muni Transit Effectiveness Project. Your donations help ensure Streetsblog is there to call out our elected leaders when they pander to the not-in-my-backyard crowd instead of putting the public interest first.

If you donate before Tuesday at midnight, you’ll be entered to win a package of zines and books donated by feminist bike activist and writer Elly Blue, including The Culinary Cyclist, PDX by Bike, and her contribution to the sci-fi/women’s studies/bicycling genre, Bikes in Space.

Thanks to everyone who’s supported us. Your one-time gift or monthly donation will help sustain high-impact media that makes our streets better.

2017 is likely to be a year of unprecedented challenges for the broader movement to create safe and healthy communities through smart urban planning and progressive transportation design.

Progress seldom happens as rapidly as we might like, especially when you’re taking on something as deeply entrenched […]
